    Sydney Mike's Note:

    These tasty lemony nuggets were found at Kraft Foods, & although there are boxed lemon bar mixes out there, the homemade kind, well.... Preparation time DOES NOT INCLUDE the 2+ hours to chill in the refrigerator.

      Perfect! This will be my go to lemon bar recipe. The texture is creamy as the recipe says. I like that much better than the jelly like bars I've had in the past.

      These came out wonderful with a light fluffy lemon filling, I used the juice of the whole lemon so this has really intense lemon flavor, thanks for sharing Syd!

      Wonderfully lemony and very moreish! I really appreciated the very clear instructions too. I'll be making some more of these for over the Christmas break. YUM! I used granita biscuits for the crust - probably the most popular biscuit here for using in bases to cheesecakes and similar recipes, and I used butter, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Made for the Everyday is a Holiday tag game.
