My Aunt Loydean has made these bars ever since I can remember, everyone always looks forward to these at family get togethers. She only uses 2 tbs flour in her lemon filling (it makes it a bit more gooey!) and she has never used lemon rind, but I think I am going to try it next time. Thanks for posting!
Lemony heaven! I was disappointed that my store was out of the lemon bar mix so I got on Recipezaar and found this recipe. Wow! It is delicious! I took the advice of others and beat my eggs longer...I also used 1/2 c. lemon juice because I like it lemony. These won't last a day at our house!
OK, but not lemony enough for my taste.
I've gotten rave reviews by both my Dad and my MIL on these! They are the best lemon bars I've made--a good combination of sweet and tart with a good, tasty, sturdy crust. I followed the advice of another on using tin foil and greasing the pan well. They were still a bit difficult to remove in one corner. A few had to be sacrificed to the cook! ;) Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
We really liked these. Everyone though they were great, but I thought they were a little it sweet. I added just under a half cup of lemon juice, but I think next time I'll add a full half cup and cut back on the sugar by a half cup. I accidentally added 1/3 cup of flour but it didn't seem to make much of a difference. I didn't sprinkle the powdered sugar on top, as I didn't want to make them any sweeter. They were super easy and I'll probably be making them again! Thanks for posting!
These weren't quite as lemony tart as I like my lemon bars to be, and I even added an extra two teaspoons of lemon juice. But the crust is VERY good. I would suggest making twice or at least 1 1/2 times the filling as I found it too crusty.
o my god these are SOOOOO amazing!! love them!
These lemon bars are excellent! I have made them twice since the holidays, and they are gobbled up!
These really are the best lemon bars I've ever had. They are SO soft and so deliciously sweet, and taste just lemon-y enough. I also use the rind of a whole lemon. These are fantastic and a hit whenever I take them anywhere - family get togethers or work events.
These taste like lemon at all, and I didn't like the eggy taste they did have. Followed all directions.
