This recipe is virtually identical to one that I use. Very lemony and delicious! Every potluck I've ever taken this too has resulted in 3-4 requests for the recipe. One thing about them: my dad made them using real lemon juice (I always use concentrate because I'm lazy), and he said they weren't as good; not as lemon flavoured.

Tart and sweet in the right proportions for my taste, and easy to make.

The recipe is really easy. Although for the person who is not familiar with lemon bars (as I was), I would like to add:
-don't be afraid of liquid-looking consistency of the filing. I didn't know how it is suppose to look like as there is no description; I got scared and add extra 4 tbsp of flour. The lemon bars still came out good and not too crazy dry. However, next time I will follow the recipe as I want more juicy taste.
-the taste came out too sweet for me. So, for someone from Europe or with preference about not too sweet dessert, I would recommend on cutting sugar for the filing.. just a little bit.
Overall, these lemon bars are very tasty and yummy!

Luscious and lemony! I tasted the batter, before baking, by microwaving a very small amount in a cup (I don't eat raw eggs). It was lemony enough for me, but if you decide to add more lemon juice, you need to add more flour. I poured the lemony batter directly onto the pipping- hot crust and then covered the pan with vented foil in order to prevent over-browning. Thank you for posting this recipe!

Perfect amount of lemony tang to this bar. Deleted other lemon bars from my cookbook, will be keeping only this one. Incredibly easy to make, really delicious.

Fantastic recipe!! I took the advice of another poster and added an extra tablespoon of flour to the filling and they came out perfect! I will use only this recipe from now on. The other recipe I used to make was good, but I couldn't get it to come out just the way I wanted it to, depsite playing with it a bit. So out with the old and in with the new and now the only!

These are so good! I used the fresh juice from 4 small lemons. I will make these over and over again. Just the right amount of sweet and tart. The crust just melts in your mouth! I've tried a few recipes for lemon bars but this one has been the best so far.

Never made lemon bars before and was a little scared but they turned out awesome and coworkers raved about them. This is definitely a keeper!!!

Good recipe. Next time I will bake for 28 minutes or so as the middle wasn't completely done at 25 minutes. We enjoyed this. The kids loved it!
