    Lisa, these bars are seriously gorgeous. And while I disagree with you (I LOVE winter and hate summer!) I think we can both agree these bars are totally perfect.

      Don't you live in Cali, Hayley? I've not visited Cali (or the US.. yet) but I'm sure that Cali has seriously hawt unbearable summers ad mild winters? If I were a Cali resident, I'd probably be the same too.

    I'm totally the same way--pop me into a climate where the average temp is less than 80 degrees F and I will bust out the gloves and thermal socks. I love your defiance of autumn's arrival, although I am a bit wary about bringing green dessert to my circle of friends! The last time I did that, my they asked me if I was trying to feed them moldy dessert. Um. No. And these look gorgeous imo (so if they don't want to eat them, I sure will).

      Haha below 80℉? That's 26℃ here and anything above 18℃/64℉ the weirdos in this country bust out the strappy tank tops and shorts, but not me! I'm so with you on that. You ought to have seen me 2 yrs back when I came back from 35℃/95℉ weather in Greece back to our 'English' summer weather, I had the heating on almost full blast with sweatshirts on!!

      The green colour is from the food colouring. I used gel as I didn't want to water down the curd with liquid food colouring (even if it is a few drops). I only put 1 drop in but as we know, gel is uber concentrated. Perhaps leave out the food colouring and/or mix the lime curd into the batter so it won't be green but still has the same taste? That would work and no 'mouldy' desserts (the cheek!) If anyone such a comment to me, I'd be like 'ah well more for me then!' :)

    Yay finally some key lime bars which are actually green :D
    They look scrumptious! And spring is well on its way here so I cannot say much :)

    Oh do these ever look yummy - I'm key lime green with envy that they are not on my counter! :)

      Aww, I would have sent you some if only they'd make it there and not be green with actual mould LOL! Oh and the fact they've already been devoured.

    They look so wonderful and yummy! I found the spring loaded bunny cutter I used for my fondant bunnies you wanted, sold here:

    Oh gosh Lisa, I love these. Now summer? I'm done. However, if I lived where you did I'd stomp my feet too. (And I've been known to wear gloves when it's 77F.)

      We haven't seen much of a summer this year so I'm so not ready for it to be over yet. We're having a bit of a heatwave at the moment. Heatwave being 25C, which is glove weather to you. haha.

    Oh my! The color is mesmerizing, Lisa! I need to make these, ASAP!!

      Glad you like them Anna. If you make them, let me know how much you love them. They only lasted about half a day in our household!!

    These look delicious!! I seriously want to try one, making me salivate.

    1. Lisa {Sweet 2 Eat Baking} September 10, 2012 @11:44 pm Reply

      They seriously are delicious. Duuude, you so have to try them. You'll salivate even more when you take a bite and can't stop eating them.

    I'm actually a winter-girl, but looking at these gorgeous bars I'm willing to change it..... :)
    It's quite difficult to get lime here and I'm sure gonna try!:)

    1. Lisa {Sweet 2 Eat Baking} September 10, 2012 @11:48 pm Reply

      Each to their own lol. There are a few things I like about winter, when it's below freezing and walking the kids to school in the snow definitely wakes me up. But then again, I'm not that fond of the cold. English summers tend to be mild (understatement of the century!) so quite comfortable. I just hate all that rain inbetween.

    Key lime bars... a perfect way to hold on tight to summertime! And they are so gorgeous too!

    1. Lisa {Sweet 2 Eat Baking} September 10, 2012 @11:49 pm Reply

      Absolu-freaking-lutely, I clinging to summer and won't let go. That is until the leaves start changing then I might change my mind. Glad you like the key lime cheesecake bars. :)

    Been looking for a cheesecake recipe for my birthday on the 27th of this month. I always make a cheesecake for my birthday. I love anything lime, lemon or both. This would be REALLY good with a shortbread crust. I saved it to my home screen and I will let you know how it goes when I make it.

    I signed up for recipes and notifications. Thanks for the recipe Lisa!

    Hi! These look amazing. Do you use salted or unsalted butter?

    1. Lisa | Sweet 2 Eat Baking October 10, 2020 @2:46 pm Reply

      Hi Susan! I always use unsalted butter for desserts. Sorry this wasn’t specified in the recipe - I’ll update the recipe.

      Use can use salted butter for any recipe that doesn’t have salt added as a separate ingredient, but the added salt cuts down on the overall sweetness. So, if you have a sweet tooth as I do, use unsalted, or salted if you prefer desserts to be less sweet.

      Hope that helps? Have a wonderful weekend.

    Today, thought of baking this recipe of lime cheesecake so I challenged it. First, I made the curd and followed recipe. Except I should’ve left it longer in refrigerator, I did everything! However, I am still pleased and happy for my first time doing a key-lime cheesecake. I got pictures of my baking, looks ok and tasty too me! Maybe next time, I leave the curd in longer into refrigerator! So yummy! Thanks for your recipe, love it...
