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.
