    annbb's Note:

    Wonderful bar-like cookies that form a crunchy layer on the bottom and a chewy layer on top. They are delicious! They were originally called "Lemon Cheese Squares" tho I can't fathom why considering the fact that there's no cheese in the recipe! I found this in the cookbook "Private Collections: A Culinary Treasure". Miss Hortense Reit is the recipe's author. If you like lemon, you'll LOVE this! Yum!

      The crust is too flour-y and thick. Good gelatin, but would be better if a sugar cookie crust was used.

      Really good lemon bars. The best part to me was the crust: it didn't crumble apart very much like other recipes I've tried. My sons and I made these together, and we all loved them.
