Luscious Lemon Bars

Crumbs on the couch....

Crumbs on the counter....

Can only mean one thing....

Lemon Bars.

This recipe is easy easy easy and one of the many that I've stolen from a fellow seminary wife. I made these the other night for our Desiring God Bible study and got rave reviews! These arent your ordinary lemon bars, so dont come expecting some bright yellow jelly-like bars with powdered sugar on top (although I wont turn those down either!).

These yummy, creamy, crumbly lemon bars wipe the floor with the ordinary lemon bars.

They fart in the ordinary bars' general direction.

So make these the next time you need a quick & easy dessert! It wont fail you!

Lemon Bars
1 box yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
8 oz cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cake mix, 1 egg and oil until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup of mixture for topping. In a 9x13 pan, pat the remaining mixture into the bottom, making a thin layer. Bake for 15 minutes. While baking, combine cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and remaining egg until creamy. Smooth over baked crust. Sprinkle on the crumbled topping. Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into squares.

Or just wait until it's not blistering hot, forgo the squares and eat the entire pan of lemon bars while they're still warm. With skim milk of course.
