These have the most amazing texture straight out of the refrigerator.  My husband loved them!  There is a substantial lemon topping.  If you would prefer a softer set, leave the squares at room temperature for 10 minutes or more.  They will hold up at room temperature, but get progressively soft and creamy.  They firm up exactly the same way again once refrigerated. I actually used the juice from Seville Oranges or Bitter Oranges, which tastes like lemon, but does not have the same level of acidity as regular lemons have.  We have several of these fruit trees in our garden.
