Loved it. The only problem is that it only makes an 8x8" portion. I used real lemon juice in the mix. Very tasty.
I will make this alot. It was way better than I what I thought it would be and very easy.
this was excellent! Very flavorful, everyone enjoyed it.
I made this treat for a barbeque I was going to. Everybody loved it... I have made it twice already.
I found this recipe to have the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness with a lovable crunch.
I made these for a dessert once, and me and my husband both loved them, and he is not a dessert fan. I later made them for a baby shower and everyone who tried them, loved them! What a hit! i will make these over and over again! Plus they aren't to bad for you!!!
My squares looked and tasted just as delicous as the picture looked!! I didn't have any Nilla Wafers at home but I had Coconut Bar Cookies I bought earlier at a Mexican food store. I substituted them and the end result was very coconut-y!! I LOVED the bars. They turned out very moist also.
Followed the recipe except doubled everything, and igood thing I did because it definitely doesn't make enough! Overall they taste and smell really good. Only issues - the crust was a little too thick and the top part edges all browned/burned. Will use less wafers next time and decrease the baking time. Also seemed to come out flatter than in the picture but maybe that's just the picture. Used fresh squeezed lemons and probably would add a little more next time to get more of that lemoney-citrus taste. Followed other tips on here for lining the pan with foil and sprayed pam. It worked wonders-no problem taking the pieces out. Definitely easy to make and will make again.
I made this recipe exactly as it said and it came out looking just like the picture and tasting delicious. I make a lot of bar type cookies and the trick to perfect ones are to line the pan, bottom and sides with Release tin foil or regular if thats' all that's available and coat it with margerine, a little heavier in the corners. When done lift it out of the pan by the tin foil and put it in the freezer for awhile until cold. Take it out, fold down the sides of the tin foil and cut into squares. The squares will come up easily off the foil.
After reading the other reviews, I was a bit aprehensive but I really like lemon and I had all the ingredients in the house so I decided to give this recipe a try. I made it in a glass 8" square pan and made one alteration. I thought it might be the amount of sugar in the crust that made it stick as mentioned in the other review, so I only added 1 Tablespoon sugar instead of the 1/4 cup. It was absolutely fine. The nilla wafers are sweet already so they really didn't need the extra sugar. We liked these so well that I might even cut them in only 16 bars rather than 20 next time!
