A fellow in work brought in a lemon chess pie one day and he said his wife made it. It was delish and I asked him to get the recipe for me. He came back with, "His wife doesn't share her recipes, but she will be glad to make you one for a price". Well, needless to say, I went looking for my own recipe and came across this one, don't know where I found it, but it is a great one.

Ingredients

  • CRUST

  • 1 box
    lemon cake mix with pudding
  • 1
    egg
  • 1 stick
    butter, softened 1/2 cup.
  • FILLING

  • 3
    eggs, beaten
  • 1 box
    powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 pkg

How to Make Lemon Chess Squares

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix Crust ingredients and press into bottom of 9 x 13 inch pan.

    Mix and pour filling ingredients over crust.

    Bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. My notes:
    If you cannot find the Lemon Cake Mix with pudding, simply add a box of instant lemon pudding to the dry cake mix.

    Spray pan with Pam or Baking Spray to make removal easy.

    Let cook completely before cutting into squares. These are very rich so keep squares more like bar size.

    They don't seem to need to be refrigerated and lasted up to 3 days on my counter. I took half the pan to work and they were GONE. Good Recipe!!!

    I will post a picture the next time I make them.
