This is a great classic lemon bar recipe that I have made many times from Taste of Home. They don't last long in our house. Thanks for posting - now I don't have to. : )

These were good, but I would have liked there to be a more crust. I decreased the baking time of the crust to 15 minutes and decreased the baking time of the filling to 15 minutes, and the edges of the filling still came out a little brown. Very sweet, but would add more lemon next time. My family liked them a lot. Thank you for sharing.
