FAQs?

Why do the lemon bars taste eggy?

As the eggs are added to the recipe you can reduce the number of eggs. But in another way, you should use fresh lemon juice and other fresh ingredients and maintain a  good quantity of lemon zest.

Can we freeze the lemon bars?

Lemon bars can be frozen and are good enough after freezing. Freeze it as a whole without slicing. They freeze beautifully for a few weeks.
