Not like traditional lemon bars but you can't beat how simple and tasty they are.

This was so quick and easy. I used my own lemon juice from my trees that I had frozen into ice cubes. If you like lemon meringue pie, you'll love this. Definite keeper!! Thanks for a quick dessert. UPDATE 4-9-09: Made these again for hubby's work. I love how easy this is and tasty.

I made these last night to use up a lemon cake mix I've had lying around and a can of sweetened condensed milk. They were so easy! Took them to work today and got compliments from everyone. Thank you for a great recipe!
