the lemon bars did get made and they are delicious. Thanks for the recipe! I will use this recipe over and over. It seemed to freeze fine...I tried one after a few hours in the freezer. I am sure it will be fine in a couple of days still. Thanks again!!

The wedding is in a little over a week but don't worry. I am just happy to have this good recipe for the wedding. The pecan-meringue recipe sounds good too but don't worry if you don't have time to post it. Thanks again!!

actually I've never frozen them...:( good question. The resipe is easy enough for a test run...when is the wedding?
If I get a chance I'll try it...sorry I wish I could offer more advice. Knowing that you need something that freezes well, I'll get my hands on my mom's recipes. she makes a wicked square with a pecan - mirenque topping that freezes beautifully...give me a day or so & I'll post it for you...:)

Those sound really great! I love lemon squares but I have never been happy with the recipe I have used before and this one sounds so much better!!

Have you ever tried freezing them? I forgot to say that I have to travel with all the baking so I was hoping to freeze everything and put it in a cooler to transport for the long trip.

this is my absolute fav..lemon seems to be a good choice for pleasing different palates. Hope you like it....

yield:16
crust:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp.salt
1/4 cornmeal
4 tbsp. icing sugar
1/2 cup butter

filling:
4 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
4 tbsp.whipping cream
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tsp.lemon zest
1 tsp. baking powder

preheat oven to 350f
butter bottom of 8"square pan
(i like to line mine with parchment)
combine crust ingredients, cut in butter. you will have course crumbs...

press into the bottom of the pan with your hands.bake for 12 mins.
allow to cool

for the filling using a whisk combine all the filling ingredients well.
pour over crust & bake for 25 minutes or until set.
allow to cool at room temp then chill before cutting...
I like to cut them into bite size squares sprinkle with icing sugar ( before serving) 7 garnish with fruit, either, strawberries, raspberries, or for big parties where time is limited lemon curls....
if you have any questions pls, let me know:)
