      Really nice flavour & presentation! Nice to have something a little different than all the lemon bars out there.

      Delicious! Have taken these to two different get togethers, and even those who do not like lime/lemon raved about them. Thank you for a great recipe.

      Great change of pace and a delicious dessert! I made these for my bunco group and received quite a few compliments on them. They are light tasting, though perhaps not light in calories. I think I overcooked the crust a little bit, so next time I will take it out 5 minutes short of the time recommended. I used 2 drops of green food coloring in the filling and it was lovely!
