I've never before tried a lemon bar. I always thought they looked 'weird'. However, these were very easy to make, had an incredibly creamy, luscious taste, and, well to be quite frank, when I brought 'em into work, they won friends and influenced people!! So thusly, due to how easy they were to make, how wonderful they were, and how incredibly addictive they were once made, I give these lemon bars five stars and re-affirm the fact that now, I too am a lemon bar freak!!! :) Thanks!

Yummy! It may just be my oven, but the bake time seemed too long...mine started to brown a little on the top. I wrestled with the crust a little, but the filling was very easy to prepare. I am a sucker for anything lemon!

Served this as one of two dessert choices for a little Memorial Day Bar-B-Que, some of our guests even asked if they could take several squares home. This was the perfect combination of sweet and tart, a great ending to a Bar-B-Que on a hot, lazy, day. Thank you for sharing!!!

Have always been a fan of all things lemon. This was great, very moorish. Not too sweet, just right.

These were too sweet for me, so next time I think I will cut down on the sugar and up the lemon juice abit. The recipe was very easy to prepare, the crust was nice and flaky and had wonderful flavor. I will make these again and try the above changes.

Very decent lemon bars. Made the crust with healthy margarine (SmartBalance / EarthBalance?) in the food processor. Then used the food processor to make the filling, so these went together super-fast and yummily enjoyed by all. I prefer a bit of zest in the crust, which adds a subtle lemony element, so I would probably add that next time. Probably the easiest and quickest dessert to make, with the right equipment... yet it still impresses people!

DELICIOUS!!! The crust is flaky and the filling is amazing. I adore lemons so I added extra zest and juice. Otherwise, this recipe is perfect!
