    This easy, tender vegan lemon bars recipe is one of the best I’ve ever had, even with no eggs or butter. A sweet-tart vegan lemon curd makes for a delicious treat when baked over a crumbly crust. Gelatin-free. Hrmm, the pan size should be fine, though I might knock off five or ten minutes to account for a thinner layer of crust. Do you have an oven thermometer? Perhaps your oven is too hot?
