    Potluck's Note:

    Even if your cookie cache is already full,you have to stuff in a batch of lime bars. Shortcake crust is tender and buttery-good. The topping has a delicate lime essence that is much more refined than lemon bars.

      I love lemon bars and couldn't wait to try these. I was not disappointed. The shortbread crust is buttery and flakey and the lime topping is sweet, creamy and not too tart. The only change I made was to add the grated zest of one lime to the crust. Perfect!

      These are yummy, tart, but not too! I made exactly as posted, adding LOTS of grated lime zest. I lined my 13x9" pan with nonstick aluminum foil and baked the shortbread bottom exactly 22 minutes at 350 degrees initially, then finished with the filling added for exactly 22 minutes. I sifted lots of powdered sugar on the warm bars, then cooled them in the pan and easily removed them by by lifting the two ends of foil. I cut the cooled bars in small bite-sized pieces. Delish!

      This is my Amelia Bedelia recipe. You know, the one that makes people forgive multitudes of your shortcomings? Yeah, I teach piano, and I always serve lime bars at recitals. I didn't intend for it to be that way, but I got so many requests it became tradition. Sometimes I wonder if parents are keeping their students with me so they can get their semiannual lime bar fix.

      Okay, I don't really think that. Very often.
