Here’s another twist on the usual lemon bars recipe that uses lemon cake mix. They are great for any get together – ladies for tea or church potluck.

Cream Cheese Lemon Bars Recipe 

1 box lemon cake mix
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 lemon, grated
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

 Mix cake mix, butter and egg. Press into 9×13 ungreased pan. Beat cream cheese and sugar. Stir in lemon peel and juice. Reserve 1/2 cup of this and chill for later use. Beat in remaining 2 eggs and vanilla into cream cheese mix. Spread over cake mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool and spread with reserved cream cheese mixture. Chill until firm.
