Lemon Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Nothing wrong with this recipe. Adjust the cooking time and make sure it’s done and it’s great. It’s a bar, not a cake, and tastes fantastic.
We recommend a sharp zester. Or more pliable lemons. Or skip this all together and just juice it. We followed other suggestions about adding leavening and this was mostly successful. We waited until the edges were golden brown and the middle was set. However, upon taking it out of the oven, the middle caved. If this happens to you we recommend a good “MUSH” along the edges to even it out. Looks good!
I'm only 13 and these came out perfectly, the reason you think it need leavening is because you need to bake it a little while longer than the suggested time. Also get a larger pan to bake it in so it will spread out and not need to burn the edges.
As the recipe sits right now, it's very disappointing. It definitely needs some sort of leavening added to it. Wish I had thought of that before I tried to bake it!
Something is wrong with this recipe! Followed it exactly, and it was a complete mess. There’s no leavening-is that a mistake? Baked it much longer without success. On a positive note, the frosting is delicious.
The flavor is wonderful, however the bars didn't rise as much as shown in the picture. It was a runny mess. Maybe it needs some leavening.
