      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!!!
