    I adored these! flavor was perfect, and i really loved the fact they are low fat and low cal.

    Like a mousse/custard! Since the crust seemed a touch plain, I added 1/2 tsp orange zest and a few drops of lemon extract. If it weren't for the fact that I've hidden the rest, it would be all gone! I love that it isn't too sweet as well. I did have to leave it in the oven about 5 mins longer that stated, but well worth the wait!

    Another 5 star recipe from Sydney Mike. These were FABULOUS ! Excellent combined flavor with the orange and lemon. They were nice, and chewy. These were thoroughly enjoyed by all.

    I give the citrus filling 5 stars and the crust 3 so it evens out to a 4. I love lemon bars but have never made an orange lemon mix...it turned out fabulous! Easy, very citrusy, tangy and YUMMY and not eggy. The crust was plain, thick and slightly chewy...I would prefer a sweeter flaky shortbread crust. I will make this again with a different crust. Thanks for the recipe! Editing to add: I want to try these with the addition of raspberries....Yum!

    These were lovely Syd. We loved the citrusy flavour from the orange and lemon mix. Easy to make, with excellant flavour and texture. Thanks so much for sharing this treat.
