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 favorites...so 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.

How to Make Creamy Lemon Cheese Cake Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. Meanwhile, combine reserved mix, 2 eggs, cream cheese and sugar. Beat at low speed for 2 minutes. Spread over crust. Bake another 35 minutes...watch carefully as not to overbake. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Then refrigerate and chill before cutting into squares.
  3. TOPPINGS...here 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!
