Lemon Cheese Bars

on April 28, 2014

And now for something entirely different . . .

The recipe for today is different in that it’s made with lemon and cream cheese.

It seems like an unusual combination, but they turned out great.

This recipe is a lot like the Chocolate Revel Bars I made in an earlier post here, only instead of fudge in the middle, it’s a lemon cream cheese mixture.

All of the lemon lovers in your life will enjoy these Lemon Cheese Bars.

You really should give these a try.

Lemon Cheese Bars

This is another very easy recipe.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Lemon Cheese Bars

1 lemon cake mix (Grandma says to try a lemon cake mix and that’s what I did)

2 eggs

1/3 cup oil (I used canola)

1 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Mix dry cake mix, 1 egg, and oil until crumbly, reserving 1 cup.

Pat lightly in pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Beat cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, and other egg until light and smooth.

Spread on top of baked layer, put on reserved mixture, and bake another 15 minutes longer.


You can see that the crust really is very crumbly.


Before and after baking – the filling puffs up a bit but stays so luscious.


These bars come out of the pan easily and will be a great addition to your easy treats file.


Yes – the lemon lovers in your life will really love these.

These are so good.

And just a little bit different.
