Tips & Tricks:

  1. The use of a cake pan (baking dish) will be very influential, a stainless pan will cook more easily than glass, so add about 5 minutes of baking time if using a glass pan.
  2. Let the lemon bars rest for about 30 minutes until they reach room temperature so they don't break or stick when cut because the texture is still wet after baking.
  3. For storage, you can put the lemon bars in the fridge to enjoy a few days later, or in the freezer for longer storage, around 1 month.
  4. Don't sprinkle the lemon bars with powdered sugar if you want to store them in the refrigerator, just sprinkle them after you want to enjoy them.
