The crust is what really makes this bar. It is absolutely delicious - don't make any changes, it really doesn't need it!

I picked this recipe because of the amount of lemon juice. I like very lemony lemon bars. The other recipes do not have enough lemon juice. I also like that it does not call for lemon jest, I find it distracting when you bite into the bar and get a piece of zest, it interferes with the smoothness. If you like a tart lemony bar, this is a good recipe. My crust was a little dense but maybe I overworked it. Next time I may try this topping with a different shortbread base with powder sugar and corn start. My crust Thank you.

My family and I loved these! Very easy to make (even using the food processor). Perfect amount of crust and lemon filling, and sweet/lemon tartness taste. If someone is looking for a great lemon bar recipe, this is it! Thank you for posting!

Very good. Very, very lemony though! If I ever make these again I will take the lemon juice amount down a bit.

I really liked this one too! I used a 8 x 11 inch pan, so it came out as thick bars (I cooked it just a little longer). Not too sweet, not too sour. Very good! Easy!

I have made lemon bars before, but these were phenomenal! My mom loved them and she isn't even a lemon fan. They had just the right balance of tart & sweet with a strong lemony flavor. The shortbread was great - very buttery but not overpowering and the right balance of crust to topping. I did add in 2 extra egg yolks and the zest of 2 of the lemons I juiced to give a little extra kick, and it was perfect. I will definitely keep using this recipe, especially since it was so easy using the food processor for the crust! Thanks for sharing!!

I followed this recipe exactly, and I thought they were absolutely perfect! I won't change a thing next time I make them-- and there will be a next time! Thanks for a really good recipe.

Luby, I tried a few other lemon bar recipes, your right this one is the best by far. I should know to go to your recipes first and I will from now on. Thank you for sharing this great recipe. I will make this again.

These are the first lemon bars I've made, and I loved both the ease of preparation and the tartness of these bars. I did halve the recipe (only 2 eggs in the house!) and baked in an 8x8 pan; also, I beat the eggs by hand for quite a while, and probably overbaked these by a bit. They were a bit eggy, but a great chocolate- and nut-free dessert to serve with strong tea.
