    westtextazzy's Note:

    I tore this recipe out of People magazine in the May 14, 2012 edition. Katie Couric says this recipe is a tradition and the perfect treat for Mother's Day. They are a little cakey on the bottom and then gooey like a delicious lemon pie and tart like lemon drop candies. I used cake flour and got great results. You can use all purpose flour as well. Delicious!

      These were so good. I made them for a quick afternoon snack, and we really enjoyed them with a pot of fresh brewed hot coffee. For the lemon juice, I used fresh squeezed which was a really good choice because the lemon bars had such a zesty lemon touch. Very delicious recipe, westtextazzy. Made for 2013 Football Pool week 2.

      Made as written for your Wk 2 Football Pool win for a family dinner last nite, these lemon bars really are delicious as you advertised. They were more popular w/the adults & the kids not surprisingly favored the gooey chocolate dessert. I suggest buttering the baking pan liberally (vs lightly) & use extra care to spread the dough on the bottom layer well into the corners. My corner pieces stuck to the baking pan & were a bit hard to cut & serve, but the others were fine. My DH was up during the night having 1 of these lovely lemon treats. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us & CONGRATS on your Football Pool win.
