"I love lime and these are tasty. For a triple lime zap mix confectioners sugar with more key lime juice and drizzle on the cooled bars before you dust with confectioners sugar."

"Shazam!! These are outstanding. They have a killer lime flavor. I drizzled with lime-powdered sugar glaze as you suggested. That is definitely the way to go. Very addicting. These have a perfect sweet-tart flavor. Thanks Diana. My whole family enjoyed these."
"Oh yeah!! Major pucker power here. I made these for the holiday festivities. I did as you suggested and topped with powdered sugar/lime glaze before dusting with powdered sugar. AWESOME!! Big hit with my family and guests. Thanks."
"Diana, I couldn't give this recipe anything less than 5 stars! A truly delicious treat with every scrumptious bite! This recipe is very close to my own Lemon Squares. If I were to add 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut to the crust, I'm not sure I could tell the difference in taste! Thanks for a real winner, Diana!"
"I made these delicious key lime bars to take to a bridal shower I was helping to host. Pure heaven is how I would describe the taste. I used the zest of one whole lime, too, and it turned out perfect. A hit with the shower-goers and I saved a few for my family to enjoy. Great sweet-tart flavor that puts a spring in your step. Thanks."
"These bars are delicious. I am fortunate to have a bottle of key lime juice in my fridge right now, and this recipe was an excellent use for some of it. I would like to point out the amount of flour in the ingredients is a divided amount, so that no-one else tries to gently spoon graham cracker crumbs out of their mixing bowl so they can remove the 1/4 flour that shouldn't have gone in. Um, like I did! LOL Also, I wasn't sure on the amount of lime zest to use, so I used all the zest off of 1 lime, which I think worked well. These were polished off at a family function, even by those who were supposedly on a no-carb diet. Thanks, Di!"
"Terrific! I had to use regular limes since I couldn't find the key limes and it turned out perfect! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Super easy recipe!! I love it. It's easy to cut in half or make double. The Key Lime Bars come out tangy and tarty so if you think Lemon Bars are too sweet, these are just perfect!!"
"AMAZING!!! took these to a Superbowl party and they were just the thing to fit the bill...not too heavy or sweet. Delicious flavor (I did the "drizzle" thing that was suggested), super consistency, really easy and inexpensive. I wish there were more stars to GIVE. thanks DiNeal!!!"
"It's parent-teacher conference time at my kids' school. The parent group that I'm involved with always provides food for the teachers when they have to stay at school all day and all evening. I was in charge of desserts this time. I made these bars as one of the desserts, and it was voted most popular! One comment was, "this is the best graham cracker crust I have ever tried in a bar!" Thanks for the great recipe!"
"Wow! Great flavor and so easy to make. I added about a quarter cup of sour cream to the lime mix, I needed to use it before it went bad, so I don't know if it changed the recipe much. We loved these! Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Wow! These were great! Plus, they are very easy to cut and make individual servings. Loved them!"
"These are simply incredible! I am all about the pucker factor and these key lime pies sure made me pucker! These are just a delicious as the Key Lime pie that I always make it a point to have when I head South and they are incredibly easy to make. This recipe will be a staple in our family repertoire!!"
"These were wonderful! I used splenda in the crust and splenda for baking in the batter and it turned out perfect....the lime flavor was perfect...."
"I'd like to give this more stars. Made for Easter, added some zest to the filling like others suggested, and it was amazing. Easy, and the flavor was just WOWZA!"
"Super easy and Super yum!!!"
"I made this with a little less lime juice and with brown sugar. This is a great recipe! I had a lot of key limes from my last trip to the farmer's market and this was a great way to use them up."
"These are delicious. I used fresh key limes (they're in season in Florida), left out the zest as fresh lime juice gives plenty of tartness, and drizzled with icing. Fantastic! Thanks for posting. KK"
"I am getting ready to make these bars for the 4th time. I can't believe I haven't reveiwed them yet! I made them in September for the first time for my 13 girlfriends (The Babes) who came over for lunch. We had appetizers and while I was grilling the shish kebab, they ate most of the lime bars! When I came back inside they had made a mess of my beautiful dessert plate! Looking like the kids caught in the cookie jar, they raved about the bars and so I had to eat one too...I don't recommend them as an appetizer but boy are they fantastic! I didn't have a problem with the crust which I think is wonderful, and it does brown slightly before becoming firm enough, but I used the glaze sprinkled with powdered sugar and put it on a plate with some cherries to make it pretty and it was perfect! Thanks for posting Di!"
"Made these for my boss's birthday (she loves key lime flavor). These are definitely more like a tradition lemon bar than a cookie or than a creamy bar. It did come together very quickly, but I found that I had to add more softened butter just to get the crust to come together. Also, it isn't the prettiest dessert, so I definitely recommend covering it with more powdered sugar or something. Was very browned at the edges by 20 minutes, I probably should have started checking at 15. All in all, thank you for posting, but I do not think I'll try again."
"Just made these to take to a BBQ at a friend's house and everyone loved them. Very easy to make, and the crust was fantastic (despite my having misread the directions and putting all 1 1/2 cups of flour into the crust!). I used bottled key lime juice and a little zest -- fantabulous! Will be making these again and again!"
