  1. Line an 8-inch x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, so that some of the paper hangs over the edge to easily remove the bars when they’re done.

  3. Firmly press the crust ingredients into the prepared baking dish, pushing them about ½-inch up the side of the dish.
  4. Place the baking dish in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.

  6. Sprinkle the gelatin on top of the lemon juice mixture in a thin, even layer.
  7. Allow the gelatin to bloom for 10 minutes, then place the saucepan over a medium heat.
  8. Cook, whisking frequently, until the mixture steams and begins to simmer.
  9. Remove from the heat, add the white melting wafers and 3 tablespoons butter
  10. Whisk until the melting wafers and butter melt completely.
  11. Set aside for 20 minutes to cool.
  12. Pour the slightly cooled lemon mixture over the chilled crust.
  13. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until the filling has set, about 2 hours.
