It turned out great- I also used sugar cookies instead of macaroon, and extra lemon juice in place of lemon rind. Hubby thought I should have used less lemon, but I thought it was perfectly lemony. I will make this again, maybe as a traditional cheescake, using a pre-made graham cracker crust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is wonderful! This recipe is wonderful! A new twist on plain cheesecake bars and SO easy! I also make this as a whole cheesecake with store bought graham cracker crust & whipped topping and it is a HUGE hit! I add more fresh lemon juice (about 1 whole lemon worth) because I love that tart lemon taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was wonderful. This recipe was wonderful. I used Neufchâtel cheese as a substitute for cream cheese and ginger snaps in place of the coconut macaroon cookies. I also doubled the amount of lemon juice. The result was a lower-fat tasty and slightly tangy dessert that all enjoyed!
