These were very much like lemon bars I make.I used fresh squeezed key limes for this.I found though good did not have enough tangy lime taste.But my friend loved them.I also added fresh lime zest to filling.Please note:recipe did not instruct to add the 2 Cups flour to crust mixture.I made the crust in a food processor.My friend said the crust was much better than the one for the lemon bars I make.I think this is one of the very few times I would use bottled lime juice in a recipe,next I may try half fresh/half bottled.But all in all addictive dessert!

Highly recommend Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Juice for these delicious bars! True key lime flavor. Thanks for sharing these.

I thought these were a refreshing change from lemon bars- I increased the lime juice(from persian limes) to 1/2 cup and glazed them with a mixture of lime juice and powdered sugar.
