Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is a wonderful recipe. It's a little labor-intensive for me because I did use fresh limes, but it tastes great. I would make it again.
We couldn't stop eating these. I prefer them over the lemon bars. I did not use the almonds this time but might try putting them in the crust for the next batch.
