Lemon bars question

My daughter is craving lemon bars but I don't have lemons for the zest only concentrated lemon juice. Will they still taste alright without the zest?

This recipe doesn't call for lemon zest. Although, it would be nice to sprinkle some on top.

Allen,
I meant to start another thread to simply as about lemon bars without the cream cheese. Although your recipe sounds delectable.

OIC. Let me check my files. I think I have one. Basically, it's a cooked custard, but no cream cheese, maybe no dairy at all.
