I found this in a local newspaper. I tried it out on a night when my teenage daughters had a house full of friends over for a movie. I managed to grab a piece before the dish was grabbed and the bars inhaled. Delicious!

Okay, this was just divine! I love anything sour, including lemons. If someone says "Go suck a lemon," I take them seriously! :-) The crusts were fairly easy to make, even though I've only made a few. I guess that shows I'm getting better. (Pretty soon I'll be a professional! ;-) LOL!) There was no lemon peel in the fridge, so I used lime peel, which gave it a speckled look, but it still tasted fine. I cut it into bars about one inch square, because it was so rich. (Mmmmmmmm!) Thanks, Mirj!
