    I made this recipe yesterday and it is absolutely delicious. My wife just told me they are just as good as regular full sugar lemon bars. I agree. Make these and I don’t think you will be disappointed. Rich and creamy with no aftertaste like some artificial sweeteners leave.

    Just made this…so, so good! I reduced the crust sweetener to 3/4 c Switch, and the filling sweetener to 1/2 c Switch. Still tasted too sweet for my taste, but the flavor was delicious! This was a test run and I’ll definitely be making this again! Might reduce the Switch to 1/2 c for crust and 1/3 for filling for next time. Fabulous recipe!! <3

    Everyone is correct- you don’t need the full amount of sweetener, or this can be cloyingly sweet, but the recipe is SO GOOD I still gave it 5 stars.

    Absolutely delish, I have reduced the sweetener in the crust and in the filling to 3/4,but still too sweet. Next time I’ll do half.
