    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    This updated lemon bar, with its zingy lemon filling, is a favorite. The shortbread base is enhanced with buttery macadamia nuts

      The crust on this was GREAT and THICK. The lemon filling was more of a thin spread on the crust...it didn't firm up like most lemon bars. I was able to cut it into squares but half of the filling stuck to the knife which made them very messy. I used a blender and mixer for step 2. Made for Maynia Tag.
