    These were very much like lemon bars I make.I used fresh squeezed key limes for this.I found though good did not have enough tangy lime taste.But my friend loved them.I also added fresh lime zest to filling.Please note:recipe did not instruct to add the 2 Cups flour to crust mixture.I made the crust in a food processor.My friend said the crust was much better than the one for the lemon bars I make.I think this is one of the very few times I would use bottled lime juice in a recipe,next I may try half fresh/half bottled.But all in all addictive dessert!

    Highly recommend Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Juice for these delicious bars! True key lime flavor. Thanks for sharing these.

    I thought these were a refreshing change from lemon bars- I increased the lime juice(from persian limes) to 1/2 cup and glazed them with a mixture of lime juice and powdered sugar.

    I made these for a school picnic but my recipe didn't have the flour in the filling & added 2-3 drops of green food coloring. I loved them as I am a big lime fan however a lot of people wouldn't try them because they were green. Those who did though liked them. Next time I will only put one drop of food coloring in to see if that makes them more appealing.

    I make a similar square with lemon juice which is a family favorite. Using key lime juice is a nice change.
