Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"This bar has the two crusts as requested, and has a strong tangy lemon taste, so much better than most of the lemon bar recipes out there due to the lemon curd and added coconut!"

This recipe should have baking powder, not baking soda in the bottom crust. Made many years.
