This was much too sweet for my tastes. I like lemon bars to be more "lemony," but my husband thought they were OK, probably because they were too sweet.

The taste of this lemon bar is quite good. I made it twice, once with more lemon juice and once with less. The one with more juice looks better but it is a bit too moist that the crust become not that crispy. The one with less lemon juice is crispy and taste better, although it looks drier and darker.
