Reviews forBake-Sale Lemon Bars
"Made these for Easter. I knew they would not be lemony enough for us, so I increased the fresh lemon juice to 1/3 cup and decreased the sugar to 1 cup and added 1 tsp of zest. They were OK the day they were made but the bottom was very soggy by the second day and nobody wanted them. I will not make again."
"These were excellent. Took them to work and everyone raved. I did use zest of one lemon, gave it a great lemon flavor. Will make again. Great job Mildred. Thank you...I am also from Rockford. Nice to see a fellow neighbor in print."

"Love lemon bars! Always enjoyed at Easter and spring get togethers."
"I have used this exact recipe ever since I found it on the box of Minute Maid frozen lemon juice in the 1970's. The crust is delicious but will crumble easily, so serve on a plate. Best lemon bars ever!!"
"Have made this recipe from Taste of Home for over 20 years, it is absolutely The Best. Even better with fresh lemon juice & zest."
"Does anyone know if these can be frozen or how long they will last? Thanks!"
