Easy Creamy Cake Mix Lemon Cheesecake Bars
Easy Cake Mix Lemon Cheesecake Bars
Layers of lemon burst crust, sweet lemon cheesecake filling, and lemony cream cheese frosting, these delicious lemon bars are a great way to welcome Spring.
- 1 lemon cake mix
- 1 can lemon frosting
- 1/3 cup butter melted
- 8oz cream cheese softened
- 4 eggs 2 for crust, 2 for cheesecake filling
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven, 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, add lemon cake mix, 2 eggs, and melted butter. Use a fork to mix until dough forms. Press into a greased 9x13-inch pan (I love my glass pyrex pan). Set aside.
In a clean mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and lemon frosting together. Split mixture into 2 parts. (1/2 will be used in the cheesecake filling and the other 1/2 will be used as the lemon cream cheese frosting).
To make the cheesecake filling, take a bowl with 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture and add 2 eggs and vanilla. Beat until blended. Spread evenly over crust.
Bake at 350 degrees for 38-42 minutes until set. A toothpick poked into the center should come out clean when it's done. Cool completely before frosting.
Using the remaining 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture, frost bars. Cut into 20-24 pieces and enjoy!
