A few recipe notes:

  • If you don’t have a food processor, a pastry cutter can be used to mix the crust ingredients.
  • Be sure that your butter is nice and cold..this helps mixing your crust easier.
  • Don’t forget to chill the bars before serving! This will firm them up.

Tried to make these...they didn't turn out. Maybe you are forgetting sugar in the filling? It is like eating lemon flavored hard cooked eggs!
