Recipe Review: Easy Lemon Bars

The best low point recipes that I have discovered have come from the Weight Watchers Message Boards. Weight Watchers members on the Recipe Review message board are so helpful to tell you which recipes they have tried and loved. They are helpful to give tips and pointers to new people. They are also honest enough to tell you which recipes are not worth your time.

This is another recipe that I found on the Weight Watchers Message Boards and for that I am thankful!

Here is the recipe for Easy Lemon Bars.

These bars are quick, easy, and very tasty. I know that often I describe my favorite recipes as ones that are quick and easy, but it is true. I am a semi-homemade girl! I work 40 hours a week. So when I cook and bake I need something that is not going to take too much time.


Here are the ingredients: Angel Food Cake, Lemon Curd, and water. Lemon has never been my favorite ingredient, but it is growing on me. I get in moods where I am craving lemon. When that happens I make these lemon bars!


When I went to Wal-mart the first time to buy Lemon Curd, I started by looking in the jam and jelly isle. However, that is not where I finally found this. It was near the mincemeat. If you do not shop at Wal-mart that does not help you, so wherever you are just make sure to ask for help if you cannot find what you are looking for.


I did not grease the pan, but you can depending on what type of pan you are using.


Let the bars cool and then top with powdered sugar.




I hope you enjoy these!

Wow! Those look super yummy. I'll have to make them sometime when I have 20 people to share them with or I'll eat the WHOLE pan. In 10 min probably.

MrsMarkDave - That's a good plan! I could probably do that as well, but then I would be so sick.

mrsmarkdave said...

HaHa! Oh I wouldn't be sick. Perhaps a little sick with guilt. But I could eat that and then maybe another pan.
It's a sad, sad deal.

MrsMarkDave - You should find some kind of Lemon Bar eating contest, because then you could win something for eating all those lemon bars.

Marlene said...

Those look so yummy and easy as well! I may have to run to the store to get the ingredients today!

Mrs. O said...

I'm with you Jen, I'd be so sick if I ate that whole pan...mrsmarkdave - there's plenty of other foods though that I could win a contest in for sure :)
Love having a quick easy recipe that's healthy, thanks!

Marlene - Let me know what you think after you make them!

Mrs. O - You're welcome. That's true. I couldn't eat lemon bars that quickly, but other foods I would be the winner.

so, do we mix the angel food cake mix with the original ingredients or just with the water & lemon curd?

Fribro said...

Am I slow. I don't see where you say how much water.
