How to Make Chocolate Lemon Bars
- Heat oven to 325 degrees. Lay two sheets of parchment paper in an 8 x 8 inch baking dish; set aside.
- Prepare chocolate crust. Combine crushed cookies and melted butter. Press crust mixture into the bottom of a prepared pan. Bake for about 15 minutes.
- Make filling by whisking together cream cheese, egg yolks, condensed milk, lemon juice and lemon zest. Let mixture rest for a few minutes to allow some of the air bubbles rise to the surface.
- Pour filling into warm crust. Place pan back into oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until filling has set.
Remove from oven and let cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar.
