Reviews for Macadamia Lemon Bars
"My family really enjoyed these lemon bars and the macadamia nuts are a nice treat.Easy to make and pretty on the plate."
"these bars are a little too sweet for my taste. best not to brown the bars, sugar caramelizes."
"I had prepared these bars, only I adjusted this recipe by using pecans instead of macadamia nuts since they were on hand for me! I'd baked these bars at 350o F. for 30 minutes for the lemon filling and 15 to 20 minutes for the crust. I'd used a greased and floured 8x8x2" square baking pan! This lemon bar recipe is certainly a 5* score! Thank you for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home! delowenstein"
