I do this a lot…I mix and match a Neiman Marcus Bar and then swear it’s my absolute favorite. I’m pretty sure that I’ve called all of my Neiman Marcus Bars my faves…but this one…this one right here…really is my favorite! (Or at least until I mix and match another one…)
This bar is lemony, light and luscious. And I couldn’t stop indulging. This is the perfect bar to take with you this spring and summer…whether it’s to the pool, a BBQ, fireworks, or just a friend’s front porch…this bar with a glass of sweet tea will make you happy. Lemon is just happy, right? So, a lemon bar…is happiness you can eat.
1 box of lemon cake mix
1 stick melted butter
1 box of powdered sugar (about 4 cups)
8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one 13×9 inch pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, 2 eggs and melted butter. Spread in bottom of pan.
In a second bowl, beat with electric mixer, powdered sugar, 2 more eggs, cream cheese and lemon zest until smooth. Spread on top of crust mixture.
Bake 35-40 minutes until edges are brown and center set (it will still be slightly wobbly in the middle).
Cool on counter 30 minutes, then refrigerate 2 hours up to 2 days.
I love lemon.
