Favorite lemon bar recipe?

Hey all,

I searched the boards, but could not find a good lemon bar recipe. Does anyone have any good, creamy and tart lemon bar recipes? I have a ton of lemons I have decided to turn into tasty treats.

    They're easy to make, and are quite addictive!

      1. My favorite has been Cooks Illustrated Best Recipe's made with meyer lemons. I think it's been posted on these boards before but I can post it if you want it but can't find it.

          I just made the recipe from the Joy of Cooking (except with double the lemon juice) and they are DELICIOUS, but I think I may try the CI recipe next time - it's fairly similar, but I have a feeling their technique will produce a lighter textured crust. The JOC recipe has a great filling to crust ratio and lots of tart lemon flavor if you double the lemon juice, but the crust might be just a little too leaden/buttery.


          I like this Better Homes and Gardens recipe. Lots of topping...mmm
