    These looked good, they have a lot of sugar and starches, though.

    I was super excited about seeing a “sugar free” lemon-square recipe and was really disappointed to see this one loaded with sugar :(

    Is this a mistake by chance and is there a link to an alternate recipe?

    I have this baking as I type. I used only honey and seem to be having good luck. I used about 2Tbsp of honey for the crust, and maybe a 1/4C of honey for the filling. Yes, I tasted the filling before cooking and it was amazing. I think this recipe is a great guide, don’t be discouraged because of the ingredients listed. You have to be willing to adapt recipe to work for your needs. Baking is a joy and I love to have these wonderful guides to use.

    1 cup powdered sugar is most certainly not sugar free!

    I agree – I would never use powdered sugar in any of my ‘sugar-free’ items!

    Sounds like a delicious book. And I have a soft spot for lemon bars! My mom used to make them all the time when I was growing up.

    I found this recipe difficult and unreliable. Results were completely different to the picture. I will not use this recipe again and will not recommend.

    So this is my first visit to your site and I have to say, if you think powdered sugar will not jack up a diabetic’s glucose you are sorely mistaken.

    Ladies….sure her site says “sugar free” but the title of this recipe doesn’t; it says gluten free. Instead of berating the poor girl….substitute baking Stevia for the sugar and enjoy the yumminess ;-)

    Just tried this recipe, absolutely terrible. End result nothing like the photo and a real disappointing GF recipe.

    This recipe turned out terrible. Not anything against you or your amazing site, but just a forewarning to fellow bakers. The filling was stiff and cake-like and the crust fell apart. Now I have to remake them with a different recipe. Oh well. You win some, you lose some. Thanks anyway for your other delicious recipes!

    And the negative feedback on this recipe continues yet the recipe remains… Makes me wonder if the owner of this site has just gone AWOL or ate too many sugary lemon bars.
