    ms_bold's Note:

    I adopted this recipe after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. Mean Chef's quote on the recipe: "DBMNMR = Don't Blame Me, Not My Recipe", and therefore, I haven't felt badly about making a few changes. The original recipe had a much thicker graham cracker crust, and didn't really balance well with the delicate and refreshing lemon flavor of the bars. I have since adjusted those measurements for a thinner crust, and hope that you enjoy it.
