  • “I love lemon bars.My whole family loves lemon bars.We love Evie’s Lemon Bar!Piquant lemon flavor, most everyone has these ingredients in the house already.I actually didn’t have caster sugar, and never will, since they don’t sell it where I live, so I just ran some regular sugar round the food processor till it was ground superfine.I then threw in the rest of the filling ingredients into the food processor, and it mixed it up beautifully.The smell was so tantilizing as the bars baked, and I practically had to lock my daughter in another room so these bars could cool down before we inhaled them.Evie, good one!”

  • “Evie, I loved these 🙂 DH says they were a little too sour but he doesn’t appreciate lemons like I do. The only downside was that I ate waayyyy to many of them because they were so lovely, and since I’m trying to loose some kg’s will save these for the special occasions so that I can splurge :)The base was great tasting and the whole thing was very easy to make. It’s going into my family cookbook as a favourite for me. Thanks !”
