I originally got this recipe from "Barefoot Contessa" on Food Network. I wrote down all the ingredients as I was watching and made them to take to a family gathering. They were a huge hit, even with the people who don't normally like Lemon Bars. When I finally got the official recipe from "The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook," Copyright 1999, I realized I hadn't made them exactly like they were supposed to be made. However, they're so well loved by my family now, I just keep making them my way.
