I made these bars and they are wonderful. Since I was using the juice of real lemons I zested them too. Very lemony. I did have a time getting the crust spread out because it very sticky like cookie dough. First I buttered my hands and when that didn't work I floured then and that did the trick. Thanks so much for sharing:)
