Andy, I'm glad you liked them! I tend to go a little overboard with them too. Did you try pastry or the shortbread crust?

I did the shortbread crust in your recipe.

I increased the filling ingredients by 25% so I could have more filling. (5 eggs, 2.5 cups flour, etc.) I thought of doing that after squeezing the lemons and finding that I hade 25% more juice than the recipe called for. Waste not, want not...

LOL! Yep, I do that too now that you mention it. More filling is always a good thing. I usually add a whack of lemon zest too. I like it really zippy though.

I zested and squeezed three lemons. That gave me the extra juice i mentioned and about a tablespoon of zest. I just tossed it all in. No one is complaining, their mouths are too full of lemon squares.
