Lovely bar recipe. I would like to offer up, that it took 3 lemons to end up with 1 cup of juice and about 1 cup of whole berries to yield the half cup of puree. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag game. :)

Great recipe, but next time i make these i will tweak rje recipe some. The bottom crust was amazing, best recipe ive made. As for yhe filling, I would suggest not adding the zest, it seemed unnecessary and didn't mix well. You would end up picking the zest out of your mouth. It needs a little more than half a cup of pureed strawberries, as you could barely taste them. One of my taste testers said 'it taste like watered down lemon bars'

I'm partial to any type of citrus bar, and I love berries so these were pretty much guaranteed to be a hit for me. These are pretty tart, so these would definitely appeal to people who aren't into super-sweet lemon bars. My batch didn't come out so cute because I pressed the crust into the pan too firmly -- I had to chisel the crust out of the pan, but that was my own fault (I always over-press pressed crusts). I was a little nervous about how thin the filling was before baking, but it firmed up just fine in the end. I was short on time to get them cool enough to slice, so I popped them in the freezer for about 45 minutes while I got ready for work. Very nice, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012

OMG!!! These bars just sceam out SPRING and the taste is to die for. A combo of tart and not to sweet that both DH and I loved. I did make some changes, added lemon zest to the crust when mixing and use rasberries that I had frozen from the garden last year. What a taste delight and looked so pretty too - what more could you ask for! Made for Spring PAC 2012
