The recipe is on the allrecipes web site, just search for lemon bars. I think the lemon bars turn out rubbery when they are over cooked and also don't over beat the liquid mixture about 30 sec is sufficient, not 2 min, sometimes over beating does something to flour, that may be why they are turning out rubbery. Hope this helps! Happy baking!!

Why can't you put how much of what ingrediant down at the bottom like you did with the oven temperature and bake time??? Other wise, the lemon squares looked EXTREMELY delicious!!! I just wanted to stick my hand throgh the screen and grab one for myself :)
