I got this recipe from a friend and now I am required to make it often. I could eat the filling with a spoon it is so good!

Not bad! I like a little thinner crust, so next ime I think I'll try doubling the filling and leaving the crust the same, and then make it in a 9x13 pan. A nice twist to the traditional lemon bar. Thanks!
