These were actually my first lemon bars to make so I didn't know what to expect, and they were delicious!! My guests were equally as pleased, and they were not hard to make at all. Creamy and lemony! Only complaint was that when I sprinkled the sugar on before serving, it disappeared into the bars, because they were so creamy I guess...so they didn't have that 'dusting' of sugar look to them. Not sure if that was my fault, but no one cared because they were so good. I had cooked them extra time to make sure that they were set. Oh well, who cares, I would definitely make them again. Oh...and I made the full fat version, maybe that had something to do with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were very good--the perfect combination of tangy and sweet! These were very good--the perfect combination of tangy and sweet! I made it for a family gathering and everyone enjoyed it. The only change I would make for next time is not to put foil on the bottom of the pan, since the squares stuck to them somewhat--I think spraying the pan with Pam would work just fine. But very good recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are good! These are good! Skip the brown sugar in the crust; the wafers are sweet enough. Baking the crust for about 8 minutes is enough to ensure a soft crust. Reducing the sugar by 1/3 for the cream cheese filling made little difference in the taste. The result was a tasty treat even with these 3 little recipe adjustments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lemon squares ever! Best lemon squares ever! I doubled the recipe and baked in a 13x9" pan. Used half regular sugar and half Splenda, and EggBeaters for the whole eggs. They were a huge hit at both my women's book club and the next day at hubby's office. Glad I saved a few for us ahead of time cuz they disappeared! :-)

These are actually a little complicated and time consuming to make, but they are delicious and totally worth the effort. I made them for a Father's Day picnic and everyone loved them.
