    I recommend cutting the shortbread recipe in half so that the ratio of lemon filling to shortbread crust is equal. I’ve made several batches of this recipe and it is super easy and delicious.

    It came out great. Maybe add more eggs and lemon for a thicker custard. was great I used a large aluminum container so maybe it was spread too thin too. Will try again for sure !

    I halved the sugar and it was great! Next time I might half the dough because I personally like more of the lemon custard.

    It was easy and very tasty! would definitely recommend it. The only change I made was less sugar by about 1/4 of a cup.

    they are easy and taste great. letting them sit a while decreases the richness and gives a great lemon flavor!

    Taste good! The first layer though is a little cookie feel maybe because I used a smaller pan and I over pushed it. But overall its so good! Taste is tangy and sweet!

    great, very tasty. i should have used a smaller pan though because the sheet pan I used was too big and some of the custard ran off the crust. other than that they came out great.

    A little too tart and sweet, not my thing, but I can see why some people would dig it
    I'll use this recipe again

    Good. Easy to make. A bit more sugar in the curd (just to taste) and longer in the oven (12 min covered with foil but it was a big hit! And indeed easy to make.

    These are great lemon bars. It's not like most lemon bars I've had. It's half shortbread, half lemon bar. Very tasty!

    They were alright but I’ll definitely be trying a different recipe next time. The custard layer was too thin and the crust was too floury
