Needed a dessert for our office Christmas Party, but I was short on butter, so I tried this recipe. I also used King Arthur Gluten free flour as we have some gluten free eaters, and wanted them to enjoy the bars also! Not overly sweet, which everyone liked, as they are healthy and fit military folks! Overall an excellent recipe and a big hit!
This is close to duplicate of my family recipe for Lemon Bars. They are fabulous, and the recipe is right on. The only difference in mine is that it makes 48. Make these, you won't regret it!
Best lemon bars I've ever tasted, just melted in my mouth. Like the others, I used butter flavored Crisco shortening along with the butter, added an extra tablespoon of flour and 7 tablespoons of lemon juice and added 2 teaspoons lemon zest. Would give this 10 stars if I could.......Thank you!
Wonderful Lemon Bars! I also used the butter flavored Crisco. I loved the idea of using 1/2 butter 1/2 shortening! This recipe really stands out from the rest because of it! I also agree with other reviewers about the lemon juice. I added 7 T. Thanx Miss Erin!
Excellent lemon bars! I reduced the amount of sugar in the filling to 1 1/2 cups, the recipe turned out perfectly! I will definitely add this recipe to my collection of favourites!
The lemon bars are wonderful tasting, and easy to make I used crisco butter flavored shortening and butter,best crust I ever made and the bars did stay around long.
these are also the best lemon bars that i've ever had. i've tried others, but none have topped these. i hate how sometimes people make them like cake with a sort of creamy frosting on top or they're more sweet than lemony. these are perfect. just don't be too stingy on the lemon juice!
