    These are nothing short of amazing. They were gone by the time night fell. When I first took them out of the oven I thought I had over cooked them but after they cooled I found they were done perfectly. Buttery and lemony, fabulous!!

    Delicious. I will watch the second stage of baking more carefully next time, as they were a little over done.

    I was really disappointed in how these turned out. They barely have any lemon taste at all, and I followed the recipe exactly. They have a great texture and look really pretty, but they don't have enough lemony zing for me. I sort of feel like I wasted a lot of ingredients (especially the 2 cups of organic sugar I used). Next time I'll stick with my old Lemon Bar recipe.

    My dad used to say that there are only two flavors of anything: chocolate, and "everything else"! Well, lemon bars are #2 in my hit parade -- LOVE THEM! This recipe is almost identical to one I've been using for years, with the same great results every time. I can't make them often, though, because I'd eat the entire panful at one sitting!

    My family prefers this recipe to the one I have used for years. The custard part sets up very nicely. I think the crust could use just a bit more sugar.

    This is a fab recipe! I thought I had overcooked it, but they are really yummy. I used lemons someone gave us from their garden and the taste is amazing. I didn't know it would make such a difference. I will make these again for sure.

    These taste amazing. The only reason why I am giving them a 4 instead of a 5 is b/c 1- they aren't very forgiving. I could my for 35 minutes just like it said, and the edges were burnt so bad they aren't edible. I just cut off the edges of the whole pan an served the inside portion and they taster great and were a great texture, but they're super easy to overcook. And like other reviewers said, the crust is a tad on the bland side, it could easily take on double the amount of powdered sugar. Also with the crust, if I made this again, I would 1 and 1/2 half the crust recipe so it's a thicker crust and I would do the same with the custard, either that or put it in a smaller pan than 9x13 like it says, they're just super thin.

    My lemon bar recipe but I only use fresh lemons and add 1 1/2 the amount of fresh lemon juice.

    fantastic recipe. Think the cooking times are off however, the cookie base got too brown, as did the lemon custard part. They were delicious, but tasted overcooked. and i took them out early.

    Delicious, love lemons. So easy but hard to eat just a few at a time!! A definite repeat.
