CEiMB: No Bake Lemon Bars




This week's Craving Ellie in My Belly was chosen by Amy of Playing House. She chose for us to make the No Bake Lemon Bars from So Easy: Luscious, Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Week by Ellie Krieger. I love anything lemon, and this recipe looked easy and quick, so I was looking forward to trying this recipe.

I really liked the flavor of these bars, they were creamy and tart. I had added the zest of the whole lemon, not just a teaspoon to amp up the lemon flavor, and I am glad that I did. My only complaint is that even though these are "No bake" lemon bars, I would suggest baking the crust to get it to set up more. My crust was very crumbly, and it kind of fell apart when I was removing the bars from the pan. Other than that, this was an easy, tasty treat!

So glad you liked them, Sarah! I had some issues with crumbly crust too, so I just sprinkled some on top of the bars like it was supposed to be there :) Happy New Year!

I didn't get to make these, but I'll have to remember that bit of advice about the crust and the extra lemon zest. Too much lemon is never enough!

I agree with you on the crust. Looks good!
