Creamy Lemon Cheese Cake Bars

Carole F


I love this recipe for its simplicity, it is made from a box cake mix. I have been making it since the early 70's..I do believe I got it out of a small pillsbury bake off cookbook. It is one of my easy and very yummy.

I wish I had a picture to show you..maybe I will make this again over the holidays and post my pictures.

pinch tips: How to Fold Ingredients


depends on what size you want to cut bars


1 box
regular size lemon cake mix
2 pkg
8 ounce softened cream cheese
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1/3 c
vegetable oil
fresh whipping cream, maraschino cherries w/stems

Directions Step-By-Step

Measure 1 cup dry cake mix; set aside. Combine remaining mix with 1 egg and 1/3 oil. Press in the bottom of a greased 9X13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine reserved mix, 2 eggs, cream cheese and sugar. Beat at low speed for 2 minutes. Spread over crust. Bake another 35 carefully as not to overbake. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Then refrigerate and chill before cutting into squares.
3 are a few ideas..depending on your taste. It can be eaten plain or as I always present it with a dollop of Whipping cream and a stemmed cherry on top. You can also do whipping cream with a drizzle of blueberry pie filling, cherry...raspberry. This time of year it would also be good with fresh homemade cranberry sauce drizzled over the top. Have fun with it, and enjoy!
