Lemon Pie Bars

Lemon Pie Bars-all the taste of a Lemon Pie with the convenience of a handy bar
I have a love affair with lemon. I love anything having to do with lemon. Lemon Cookies,Lemon Pound Cake. Lemon Cheese Squares. You get the idea.
When I was a kid, there was a box mix for making Lemon Squares. I think it was made by Sunkist, whatever. Anyway, those bars were incredible.
Then then mix just dissapeared from the shelves. Probably some distribution thing, but I was crushed. As box mixes go, this was one of the best.
Time passes, I find other new wonderful recipes to try. I learn to bake from scratch. And then I stumble across a recipe from All Recipes.
It was actually in the teaser magazine they sent with another magazine. I don’t even remember which one. They also printed a review that said it needed more filling so I adjusted the recipe to allow for it.
If I do say so myself, I think these bars are the perfect ratio of crust to filling and the taste, dare I say it, is better than I remember from that box mix.
