Wow, these were fantastic!! They tasted just as good as ordinary lemon squares. I did cut down the flour in the crust like ICBIH suggested. I also used half whole wheat and half white flour. I did cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of splenda. These were lemony & addicting! Thanks for posting.
