Reviews for Pecan Lemon Bars
"I like these because they're a bit different. Yummy!~ Theresa"
"I will use gluten free flour but the recipes sounds great. I plan to make tomorrow for Sunday nite church."
"I was a little disappointed with the bars, but my husband and others in our small group really liked them. I used a combination of pecans and walnuts, which tasted good. The recipe said to use an ungreased pan, but I think using a light spritz of cooking spray would help get them out of the pan more easily."
