Recipe Comments & Reviews

I used powdered sugar instead of sugar in the crust recipe. It turned out excellent!!!
I make this recipe a couple of times a year, it is a huge hit in my family. If I make a batch to take elsewhere, I have to make sure I also make a batch for home.
Looking for a lemon cookie/bar to integrate with my Eastern European receipes for the holidays and this one is very good. Easy to make and I used the aluminum foil as suggested - worked great...I made a receipe and a half since I did not have a smaller pan - came out fine. I will add that I always use Land of Lakes butter for all my cookies and walnut rolls......
I started making these a couple of weeks ago. Everybody absolutely loves them! One lady told me today that these were the best she has ever tasted.
This was quick and easy to make and everyone loved it...we have made it about 10 times so far.
