    It looks great. It's cooling right now. But the batter was really dry and the cake mix wasn't absorbed. I followed the recipe to the tee. I ended up adding about 1/4 cup of water so it's a little thicker than your picture. I like this recipe, I'm just wondering if there is a wet ingredient missing?

    I did not like the bottom ? seems to be needed more baking time , and I don't like Lime because it gave the tart a little bitter taste ... but it's very easy to make thanks a lot for sharing ...

    Mine looked like a disaster, nothing like the picture, but boy did they taste great. I will make these again. And again. And again. Hopefully I can get them to look as good as they taste.

    Hey Vick: Meant to get back to you earlier but my computer is really S-L-O-W today. I made the lemon bars and they were a huge hit. I honestly was thankful that I had people over (unexpectedly) when I started to cut the dessert into squares. I would have eaten them all. Also, I tried high and low to find a lime cake mix to try the lime squares. There is nothing out there. Thanks again for the recipe, it's a keeper.~~~~~~~Sas Love the martini idea and I just bought cukes!!!!!!!

    Vickie: Looking for an easy dessert that kids would like for a party Saturday night. These sound great and I look for to eating a pan of them myself just to make sure that they are going to be perfect for the party.XXXXXXXXXX Sas
