    Pvt Amys Mom's Note:

    These are To Die For. A neighbor brought these over for the holidays and I have to tell you, they are addicting!! They are easy to make too, what more could you ask for?? The recipe does not call for it, but I add the zest of 1 lemon and also a glaze on top made with fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar.

      Be careful not to overcook or they get very crumbly. The crust should be slightly crumbly when you bite into it, but not fall apart in your hands. The topping should be the consistency of lemon meringue pie filling.

      I wanted to make a dessert for the hubby when he got home, and this was perfect, because it's easy & uses ingredients I always have on hand. That being said, the bars were pretty good.. I halved the recipe and baked in an 8x8 pan. I also sprinkled some powder sugar on top. My only complaint is that they were almost TOO sweet for me (even without the powder sugar on top). And I think I would like even more of a lemon taste.. so perhaps I'd add more lemon juice next time.

      A yummy treat we all loved! I included one teaspoon lemon rind, covered the filling with foil for part of the bake time, and sprinkled the finished lemon bars with sifted powdered sugar. I like that it's easy to halve this recipe for baking in a 8x8" pan. Thank you for posting!
