Macadamia Lemon Bars
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min. + cooling
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
These are delicious! I put in double the lemon juice as suggested and they taste awesome.This is definitely a keeper!
Taste of home, "this time you have out done yourself." this was the best lemon bars I ever tasted. thanks for the res.
I double the lemon for more flavor and when the crust is almost done, I cover it with white chocolate chips, let them melt and spread it, then I add the filling....so good.
These are awesome!
While these are very tasty, I wondered if there's a few misprints with the recipe. First off, the crust layer won't be "crumbly" if you stir in half a cup of melted butter- it's way too wet for that, and I wonder if it's supposed to be half a stick (1/4 cup) butter instead. When you press it up the sides of the pan, it melts back down in the oven so you only end up with a bottom crust. Make sure you grease the pan very generously, and maybe even flour it a little bit. If you really want the lemon flavor to be prominent, I recommend doubling the amount of lemon juice in the filling, otherwise the lemon flavor is very light.
These are so good...melt in your mouth...make you feel like spring is just around the corner!
these are our favorites. when I make them, they are gone in minutes.
