      Taking other's suggestions; I used 1/2 c. lemon juice, the zest of one lemon, and beat the eggs for about 7 minutes before adding the remaining ingredients. I did not cool the crust before adding & baking the filling. They turned out great! They were completely set after 25 minutes in the oven. I think it helped to add the filling when the crust was still hot. I also lined the pan with foil (sprayed lightly with pam), leaving the edges long so that I could use the foil to lift the bars out of the pan once chilled. I do this with a lot of baked goods, so that I can put them on a cutting board and use a large, straight pizza cutter to cut them into nice bars. I found that they were easier to lift out and cut if they were chilled. Once lifted out of the pan and cut, I then let them come to room temperature before dusting with powdered sugar and serving.

      Absolutely delicious. I too increased the lemon zest, using the zest of one lemon. Nothing else to change. Easy and the taste is divine. As suggested by Mirj might give orange a go next time.
