    Great. Just like any other lemon bars. I cut the sugar for the filling in half, and it was pleasantly tart with good lemony flavor. - 6/2/11

    These were great! Easiest treats I've ever made. I couldn't stop eating them. I've already recommended coworkers try to make them at home because I didn't have any left for them to test! - 5/11/12

  • I cut the sugar in half and made these in muffin tins. They had a nice sweetness and the perfect amount of lemony flavor. My friends loved them.

    I had some leftover crust and baked them in the tins. Even the crust was yummy by itself--tasted like a crisp, buttery cookie. - 4/15/15
