    I have these in the oven as we speak, but a few questions,for the filling you say mix the first 6 ingredients together in a food processor....according to your ingredients, there are only 5 ingredients in the crust, I mixed only the 5....next, for the filling you say beat the remaining flour....what do you mean by remaining? I used the 1 1/2 cups as directed for the crust, so I assume you mean beat the 1CUP of flour for the filling, not the REMAINING???? They sound so good, so I hope they don't come out wrong....think you maybe need to redo the directions? Thanx:)

    Darn, should have been 2 tsp lemon zest. The remaining flour was the flour in the filling. You did it right. I just forgot to add the zest to the recipe...so sorry. I hope you like them. I will edit the recipe.

    It is edited now, which I am sure does you no good, as far as missing the zest in the crust. It's easy to miss an ingredient. But, I noticed you haven't posted any recipes, so you wouldn't know how easy it is to do. So sorry for the imperfection on my part. :)

    Cassie, I hope you're on your computer right now. I'm making these bars - do you bake the crust first before adding the filling?
