    Wildflour's Note:

    This is the best (finally!) recipe for lemon bars that I've tried. And I've tried a LOT of them over the years. This is the winner hands down! Found in an old Good Houskeeping cookbook! (I still changed it a little, but very minor changes.)

      10 stars! These turned out so wonderful. Thanks for taking the time to post such a great recipe with exceptional instructions. I will not need to look for anymore lemon bars recipes, this is it! I did use fresh lemon juice and I added the zest of 1 lemon to the filling. These came out looking beautiful as well as tasting delicious.

      These were good with some minor modifications. Added about a tablespoon of lemon zest to both the crust and the filling.
