Awesome Lemon Bars, but I was wondering if the 8 teaspoons of lemon zest is correct for the glaze. I started with just 1 Tablespoon and that appeared, and tasted, like plenty. I am a Lemon Lover and these hit the spot. The 2nd time I made them I added a half cup of toasted coconut to the top and that was delicious too.
