The recipe is great, but the talking is really maddening and insufferable.I will look for other recipes in future where this voice is not part.

You have to read thru the message , then tap on Chef's John Lemon Bars. Your recipe will come up and you just scroll down. There it is.

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!!
