This recipie is delicious no matter how bad you muck it up! I am a beginning baker and this always turns out delicious but I find that this recipie doesent call for enough margarine and sugar to hold together the crust. Besides that, not too tart, not too sweet. Just right!

I confess I had the idea making these when I saw the picture. They're as good as they look! I didn't have Graham crackers crumbs and I used Ladyfingers.

What a Dish!

I love this recipe! I've made it twice. Both times used low-fat condensed milk and a mix of low-fat and regular cream cheese. Delicious and creamy. I don't add sugar to the crust (I figure graham crackers are sweet enough). I've also never added the nuts since I was serving it to a crowd. I love the light, refreshing flavor of these bars! *** Made these again using organic lemon-ginger sandwhich cookies (omit sugar) and just a touch of butter and walnuts for the crust. (Mixed it up in my food processor). When serving, topped with a dollop of lemon curd from Trader Joe's. They taste even better this way!
