"These lemon bars taste just like the real thing, if not better. They’re also pretty easy to make, even though you’ll go through several steps in the baking process. And at only 1g net carbs per serving, who could resist these yummy, lemony desserts? Some like their lemon bars on the tangier side, others like them sweet. If you like them sweeter, simply add a tablespoon more of erythritol to the filling. If you like them slightly tangy, leave the recipe as is."

NotesMake sure not to overbake the crust; otherwise, you’ll end up with a crumbly bar that won’t hold well together. And for even-looking bars, be patient when pressing the dough and evening out the filling – it takes a steady hand to get it right, but it isn’t all too complicated, really.
