MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 28, 2014

Pretty good. I love trying recipes with cream cheese. I didn't add the cinnamon. I just don't like it cheesecake crust.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2014

These bars did not turn out for me. The crust was so hard that I couldn't get it out of the pan. I reviewed the recipe again to be sure that I had followed it exactly, and I did. I won't be making this recipe again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 8, 2013

I took these to a friend's dinner party and everyone raved about how delicious they were. The grated lemon peel enhances the flavor. The bars are not too sweet either. Just right!
