Easy Eatin' Lemon Bars

Easy Eatin' Lemon Bars created by Susan Dillard

These were brought into my work recently to celebrate a co-worker's birthday. Absolutely incredible! The baker was hunted down and made to hand out the recipe. ;) It came from her Pampered Chef cookbook, and the pan she used was one of their 'bar pans'. I'm sure a 13X.. or 15X.. could be substituted, but the baking time should probably be adjusted.

    These are a winner! My family raved about these. I did not change a thing.

    Fantastic recipe. I couldn't believe how easy they were to make - you don't even have to cook the pudding! Very tangy. The whole family loved them. I used a standard 10 x 13 cake pan and had to increase the baking time to about 35 minutes, but they baked just perfectly. Thank you for sharing.

    These lemon bars are GREAT! They are also very easy to prepare. I took them to a 4th of July barbecue yesterday and everyone loved them! Thanks for a great recipe, I will be fixing this one a lot in the future. I used the Pampered Chef bar pan and the filling covered it all perfectly.

    These are great! I made them this morning and they were very easy.(except I forgot to reserve some crust for the topping, so I did a little scraping - caught myself in time though) We all like lemon here and these bars are certainly lemony and rich. I used a regular 9x13 pan and they came out just fine. Thanks for sharing this one.
