Overall, easy and delicious recipe! I would recommend.<br/><br/>However, it isn't quite what I think of when I think of lemon bars. 1) The crust. I did the recipe exactly, but came out with a VERY deep crust. When cutting calories, the crust is a huge part of that. I will try halving the crust ingredients next time.<br/><br/>The lemon part is pretty good. I added more lemon juice (a full 8 oz) for that very sweet and tart flavor. It worked.<br/><br/>This has a slight sponge texture to it, but it's not bad. I would feel comfortable making it for family or friends, but I think I'll tweak the recipe a little. Definitely worth the 114 calories per bite! (mine were about 2 bites for each serving) :( but so worth it!

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.
