Cream Cheese Lemon Bars

Ever in the mood for a tasty dessert that ISN'T chocolate?  I know, it hardly ever happens, but these lemon bars are the exact remedy of "I need something sweet and I don't want it to be chocolate" syndrome. 

Cream Cheese Lemon Bars


1 box of lemon cake mix (I got the "extra moist" kind)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
8 oz cream cheese
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 cup sugar


Combine cake mix, oil and 1 egg until crumbly.  Reserve 1 cup of the mixture and set aside.  Spread remainder of the crumbs in a 9x13 pan and pat down firmly to form a crust.  

Bake at 350º for about 10 minutes or until crust is lightly golden brown. 

In a bowl, mix remaining ingredients and whip until fluffy and white (that's important)

Spread over the crumb crust and crumble the reserved cup of crumbs over the tip.  Return to the oven and bake for another 25 minutes.

Cool before cutting.
