    I made this with egg substitute instead of real egg. The topping came out a little too soft but was still cooked through and tasted good. A bit more time in the oven might have helped firm it up a bit more. Definitely let it cool all the way before cutting it up!

    These were pretty good and easy to make. I had to bake the crust a little longer than the recipe specified before it browned. Also, make sure you pack the crust down well and evenly, or the lemon topping will not be even either.
