Classic lemon bars get a couple of twists: wheat germ adds texture to the shortbread crust, and lime juice and zest join their lemon counterparts to flavor the filling.

    These sound great. For all those who want nutritional information there are many sites on the web where you can obtain this. Yes, it is always nice when we don't have to do the work, but really. It doesn't take that much effort to get what you want.

    I second that request! These look great but I want to know how many calories and fat grams I'll be getting with them as well! I'm surprised they don't have that kind of information as standard these days.

    made these last night, and it takes me longer than 30 minutes to get the center set, so one pan was a bit underdone with wet filling, but the other pan worked out great - they are all crispy and chewy at the same time. maybe there should be a dusting of icing sugar on top, as it is very tart
