    Amy020's Note:

    When I saw this recipe in WW Magazine, I HAD to try it. I LOVE lemon squares and have been looking for a lighter version. At first bite, I thought these were okay....but now I've had 3 and really have to put them away or I'll eat the whole pan. They do have that gooey consistency of a lemon bar! I guess I'd like them to be thicker and in that case would make them in a smaller pan...but then the portions would be smaller - it's all a trade. As written, the recipe is 3 pts per square. However, I used Land O Lakes light butter (oxymoron!) which brought it down to 2 pts per square.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    bars

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350*.
    2. 2
      Make crust: mix flour and brown sugar using a food processor until fully incorporated. Toss butter into flour mixture and pulse to combine until butter is cut into tiny pea-sized pieces and dough appears lumpy. Pack gently into ungreased 13 x 9 x 2" pan (I lined mine w/foil to simplify cutting). Bake 20 minutes until golden.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile: Make lemon topping. Beat eggs in medium bowl w/electric mixer (I just did everything in the food processor for easy cleanup). Add vanilla extract and 3/4 c powdered sugar. Mix well. Add lemon juice and remaining powdered sugar until sugar is completely dissolved.
    4. 4
      As soon as crust is finished, remove from oven and reduce temperature to 300*. Immediately pour lemon mixture over hot crust. Bake completely, about 30 minutes Cool and cut into 24 bars.
    5. 5
      NOTE: Instructions emphasize that the crust MUST be hot when you pour the lemon mixture over. Not sure why, but they made a special note, so I'm passing that along.

      I dunno, lemon bars are supposed to be luscious, and these just didn't offer that luxurious lemon curd experience. In fact, the lemon filling came out rubbery on mine. I followed the recipe to the letter, but maybe I did something wrong...

      This isn't a "diet" recipe, it is a recipe that is just naturally not terribly high in calories! This recipe is in a cookbook I've been using since I was a kid! <br/>Great bar cookie though, classic, and delicious!

      Wow! I was surprised by how good this was. My kids are begging for seconds. I did make one change. My son is allergic to eggs so I used Ener-G Egg Replacer. I was pretty skeptical of change I made as well as the fact that this is a "diet" recipe but it was really good.
