Commonly Asked Questions

Why did my lemon bars not set and my bars too gooey?

Lemon bars are not set when the curd slipped underneath your crust. The curd on top of the crust will only be gooey if the lemon bars aren’t frozen enough. For this recipe, you need to refrigerate it, preferably overnight to let the curd freeze properly. 

How long can I keep my lemon bars?

Your lemon bars will be good for four days in the fridge. If you wish them to last longer, make sure you keep them in an airtight container in the fridge.
