Very good, buttery, but needs more lemon and a bit of salt! It could also use more filling. I added an extra half tablespoon of lemon juice and it still was not tart enough for me so next time I'll add a whole T more or 4 total and adjust the flour accordingly. I also added a 1/8 teaspoon salt in the filling and it is still sweet. Overall even if I might change things in the future, they are still amazing with my changes and I can't stop eating them warm. Unable and unwilling to wait for the cool down!!!

This is the first and only Lemon Bar recipe that I have been making since around 1980. I still have the original cut from a magazine advertisement. Everything is the same except my recipe calls for 1-1/3 cups of flour in the crust ingredients. Not sure how reviewer Jennifer made her bars without eggs though. It clearly states in the ingredients "2 Land O Lakes® Eggs."
