I LOVE lemon bars and these do no disappoint!! I made 1/2 the batch since DH doesn't eat them (there is no chocolate) and I didn't want to eat the whole pan myself (though I could!!) They were super easy to make and nice and tart, but not too sour. Will be making these again! Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #65.
