Pin Fail: Lemon Bars

I consider myself to be a decent chef, but not all of my attempts end in success.  This Sunday, I created my Oscar feast of appetizers and I always include a dessert.  I decided to try this recipe for Lemon Bars.   I liked the look of this recipe because it didn't have a ton of ingredients and it was Weight Watchers approved.  I was hoping for a tasty and healthy option for dessert.  This was not it.  As it was a new recipe, I worked hard to follow the directions exactly.  The crust was pretty easy to make and turned out fine.  It was the filling that was the issue.  To make the crust, I pulsed brown sugar, flour and butter together in the food processor.  I pressed it into the pan and baked it for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.  Meanwhile, I mixed the filling.  The fact that the filling only contained eggs, powdered sugar, and lemon juice was a bit odd in my book.  I am not an egg person and I was a little concerned that the recipe was mainly egg based.  I carried on, by beating the eggs, adding vanilla and powdered sugar.  Next, I added in the lemon juice and more powdered sugar, mixing until smooth.  Finally, I mixed in the lemon zest.  Another step that seemed odd, was adding the egg mixture to the hot crust.  I was worried that adding the eggs to the hot crust would immediately overheat them and cause them to scramble.  I baked the bars for 30 minutes at 300 degrees.  When I pulled it out of the oven, I noticed they did not look like the picture in the recipe.  My bars were flat and cracked looking, instead of fluffy and smooth.  I cut them into bars after cooling and tried a little bit of the filling.  It was gross.  It tasted like egg with a lemon hint.  I let Mike try them and he ate a bar or two before he agreed that this recipe was a bust.  Do not try this one, unless you really like eggs!  Meanwhile, I'm searching out a new lemon bar recipe.
