      Something went really wrong with these. The crust floated or something and I couldn't spread the topping. Maybe I was supposed to cool it some after the filling cooked. Tasted fabulous though. Served them at Thanksgiving even though they had to be scooped out.

      I think this is my favorite lemon bar recipe. The grated citrus rinds really bump up the flavor and set it apart from the others. I have had it in my Taste of Home collection for a while. Thanks for posting it!
