      These are to die for. I love lemon bars and the nutty twist is so yummy! I found that I liked the nuts in larger chunks so there is no reason to chop them up fine...they sink to the bottom anyway and sort of fuse into the crust. The flavor is delightful. I agree...add more lemon zest. Thanks so much!!

      I've made these several times and they are wonderful. Currently my favorite lemon bar. They are lemony not eggy. I never would have thought of the macadamia nuts but they go very well with the lemon and give it a nice texture. The crust is yummy too, shortbread like. The only thing I do different is add more lemon rind. I add it to the crust also. The mistakes I've made are: adding more lemon juice because I didn't want to waste it, which made it soupy & it didn't work by doubling it in a 13x9, darn. These bars are delicious, try them! Please use fresh lemon juice.
