"These are wonderful lemon bars! After reading some reviews about too little lemon filling, I made a couple adjustments. I kept the crust the same but pressed it into a 9x9 pan and baked for 10 minut..." See morees. Then I increased the lemon filling to 1 1/2 times the amount in the recipe. This gave me the perfect ratio of crust and filling! Perfect balance of sweet and tart."

"Even my boyfriend who doesn't like sweets kept raving about this one. I did have to add about an extra tablespoon of butter into the crust. Also, when I was looking over the recipe it didn't look like..." See more there would be enough filling so I changed the serving size to 24 (original recipe makes 16). So - leave the crust measurements the same and multiply the filling measurements by 1.5."
