Delicious Filling! I pulled out a box mix of Lemon bars to make as a thank you treat and the crust was fine but the filling was rancid! I used the crust but needed filling so I did a quick search on here and found this recipe. The filling had excellent flavor and texture! I can't wait to try this with the crust! YUM!!
Crust was a little dry so I will make it with a little more oil and butter and spread out in larger pan. The filling was too thin so I will double recipe next time. I also used Splenda and it tasted a little too sweet.
Great with alterations I thought this recipe used too much sugar for my kids. I also wanted a much more tangy filling so I changed the recipe as follows: Used 1/4 cup sugar in crust. Doubled filling using: 2/3 cup granulated sugar 5 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest 1 cup lemon juice 3 large egg 1 large egg yolk 3 tablespoon white whole-wheat flour Turned out wonderfully tangy and the kids loved it!
i made these for father's day and they were a huge hit! i used a meyer lemon instead of a regular lemon and they were spectacular. the texture is perfect and you would never guess they are low fat or made with whole wheat flour. they didn't come out super attractive but the powdered sugar helped to conceal that.
I just made these are they are delicious!!! However my only thing I would change next time is making a little less crust or a little more filling because right now the crust is really thick but the filling is just a tiny layer over the top. But I will be making these again!!
I like the flavor and texture of the crust. It provides a nice counterpoint to the sweet tartness of the filling. Both elements are quite tasty and well worth the effort. I'll bake them again for sure!
delicious....my husband really loved the crust..I did add a bit less sugar in the filling and doubled the lemon zest we love them zesty...and we have a lemon tree...I did cut them into 12 servings...so the calories went up a bit...but a great recipe...thanks..
