Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Bars

STOP!!! Don’t pass this recipe by. Lemon lover or not, these bars are SO melt in your mouth you’ll want to eat the whole pan. I have had this recipe for years. Everyone loves them and I hope you will too! 3 sticks of butter in these bars. What else is there to say! enjoy
-I made this recipe for the 4th of July and thought they were wayyyyy too sugary and not lemony enough. Very disappointed. They hardly got eaten. I definitely will not make again. They ended up in my trash. Although I did enjoy the crust on the bottom…it tasted like a shortbread cookie.
-I made a boo boo. The crust looked under cooked, so while I had to go to wrk, I had my husband bake it another 10 mins then finish the baking w/the lemon filing that I made b4 I lft. When I came home it was so hard to get out of the pan. We were afraid it was a flop, a waste, a throw away to remake & start ovr again. But we ea tried a bite & decided it was worth salvaging. So I’m gonna go ahead & frost it & enjoy it, non-the-less… Lesson learned. I def wanna make this delightful sounding desert the way it’s supposed to be.
-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:)
-These are soooo good! Made them for our cookout tomorrow but had to sample, in case they werenXt any good! Thanks for shsring
