Lemon Frosted Bars

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Dorel

My family loves these bars. We like a lot of bottom crust. I doubled the original bottom crust recipe. If you think it's too thick you can half it.

I made this exactly as the recipe said, but no one in my family got overly excited by these. Served to a friend as well, and didn't get one "I love these" or "these are good" - just a polite thank you. I really wanted to like these. My filling didn't come out looking like yours did. Kind of tasted like a granola bar. Also, my frosting was scant at best - felt it needed more. Would be pretty with a bit of lemon zest sprinkled over the top.
