      These were really good! I made half a recipe and used flaked coconut in place of the pecans. I think lemon and coconut are meant to be eaten together! The only reason I am not giving this five stars is because I found the crust too crumbly - it needs to be a bit wetter so it doesn't fall apart so easily when it comes time to serve. Perhaps brown sugar would help it stick together better - next time I might try adding a bit of the condensed milk to the crust. I used the grated zest of one small lemon as others have done and I found the cheesecake perfectly sweet and tart. Since I halved the recipe, I opted to cook for only 25 minutes in my oven...that was a mistake - 5 more minutes would have given it a better cheesecake-like texture. Finally, to address the criticism about the bars being too thin: I put my half recipe in an 8 X 8 casserole. I think the thickness was perfect. For a full recipe, I'd say a 9 X 13 pan is the appropriate size to use. I think others that found these bars too thin were wanting the thickness of a cheesecake, but this isn't a cheesecake!

      Lemon and cheesecake are my favorites too, Lori. These cheesecake bars were wonderful. Very easy to make and tasted like I made a big effort. I used fresh-squeezed lemon juice and the taste was rich and very refreshing. The texture was creamy and my family sure enjoyed it. I took the left-overs to work so my co-workers could get a taste. They loved them too. Thanks Lori, for sharing your recipe.
