Wonderful bar-like cookies that form a crunchy layer on the bottom and a chewy layer on top. They are delicious! They were originally called "Lemon Cheese Squares" tho I can't fathom why considering the fact that there's no cheese in the recipe! I found this in the cookbook "Private Collections: A Culinary Treasure". Miss Hortense Reit is the recipe's author. If you like lemon, you'll LOVE this! Yum!
