Reviewed Lemon Bars

Oct 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought these were the easiest and best lemon bars I've ever made! I have tried Barefoot Contessa's numerous times and tried to get it right but the filling never set even with my tweaking the recipe, therefore I had to refrigerate before I cut them. Not so with these! I did alter a few things such as 1/2 cup of lemon juice and 1/2 cup of fl...

My husband says this is the BEST thing I have EVER made him. I made this with the gravy and mashed potatoes and it was delicious! I have never had it this good in restaurants. Looks like I'll be making this often since apparently its the most amazing thing I have ever made.""

That cinnamon really made it unique! It's not your typical sweet tea. Everyone loved this indefinitely! I didn't really taste the orange or ginger, but I still loved it and will be making again!""

In a word: AMAZING! I followed recipe as directed, but I did not strain the custard. I'm too impatient to do that, and the texture was still really good! I also omitted the meringue topping and opted for cool whip. LOVED IT! Not a huge fan of meringue and this was easier. This was a perfect salty and sweet dessert that was a huge hit! (crust...

I loved this! Reminded my husband of his childhood in his grandpa's kitchen. One thing I will tell those who are going to make this is double the amount of cornstarch and heat the mixture to a boiling point. The double boiler did not thicken it (not hot enough) so I poured it directly into the pan on low heat until it came to a boil. Came out perf"

After reading the reviews, I was a little skeptical about the dish being too salty. I let the salt sit for a half hour, and then rinsed VERY well and let them drain as directed. I used a little more vinegar and cayenne in the dressing, because I like a little more bite. As Paula always says, sour cream needs salt, so the sour cream balanced out "

I give it two because it did taste really good. However, I made this twice, and have yet to agree with the recipe. The first time at 400 degrees as instructed and they were a little burnt and slightly undercooked in the middle. The second time, I did 375 degrees and they were pretty much raw inside. Really frustrating for me! Also, the butter/sugar/nut...
