    QueenBee49444's Note:

    While on vacation this summer I enjoyed the book "Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder" by Joanne Fluke. Not only was the plot a fun read but the author interspersed some good recipes throughout the book. This is one of the recipes. I want to forward the book to my Zaar Used Media Swap partner today and I am posting the recipe here so I can try it later. The author did not indicate the serving size, prep time, etc. so I am guessing. I will update after I make the recipe. Prep time does not include cooling time.

      I have made Lemon Bars for years, and this is closest to my old recipe. Thanks for adding it QueenBee49444. The only changes I made were to add the zest of one lemon and 1 teaspoon of Lemon extract to the lemon mixture. Wonderful recipe! Thanks again!!!

      This didn't have as much lemon flavor as I would have liked. I think if I try it again, I will cut down on the sugar in the lemon layer and increase the lemon juice.

      I made these over Christmas... and will add them to my Christmas goodies to make. I have put them in my Book #232436 cookbook, so they will certainly be made many more times. Thanks Queen Bee!!!
