      These bars are soooo yummy!! All of the ingredients taste lovely together, though I may add different ingredients to the top crumble layer. And/or sprinkle some powdered sugar and cinnamon on top. Very very good, I will definitely be baking these bad boys again!!!

      Very easy and very tasty. I added a little extra lemon zest to the crumbs and to the filling. I'm wondering if you could substitute some chopped almonds for the some of the cracker crumbs? I'll have to try that next.

      I made these for a 4th of July party from a TOH magazine I believe...Everyone loved them, just be sure to not overbake the crust. It will look like it still needs to be a bit browner, but overcooked crust makes the bars too crunchy.
