Lemon Cheese Bars

I know, I KNOW!!! I'm posting way more recipes than cards these days. I'm sorry, I don't know what's come over me. Oh wait, yes I do .... PINTEREST!

So many gosh darn good ideas on that site -- & it's all neat & organized & SIMPLE. I *love* simple. 

Ok -- actually this recipe is NOT one I found on Pinterest -- I've had it a while. But who knows -- maybe it will find its way there somehow :)

Lemon Cheese Bars

1 package (18.75 oz) yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon extract

In a bowl, combine the dry cake mix, one egg & oil until crumbly. Set aside 1 cup for topping. Press the remaining crumb mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; add the sugar, extract & remaining egg. Spread over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers. 


Another super easy recipe that turned out FANTASTIC!! They were gone pretty quickly :)

I went to a Pampered Chef party last night -- talk about good eats!! I bought a few gifts for myself :)  & I can't wait to get them. The unglazed stoneware is on sale this month so I had to get the large bar pan. I have all the other stoneware & *love* it. I bought a few other goodies as well -- can't wait to test them out. I think I'm going to have a catalog party myself in the next month or so --- if you are interested in ordering something -- please let me know. I still have to work out the details with my consultant, but I think all I would need is your email address so she can send you the info. I've had a party at my house in the past, & while they are great fun it seemed to be a lot of work for me -- plus the expense of the food -- so this time around I'm going the catalog party route :)

I hope you all are having a great weekend -- another super day for us here -- & they predict upper 30's & 40's for the coming week. Now THIS is how winter in Wisconsin should *always* be :)

Oh my, those look totally DELICIOUS hun! I wish there was a Super Express Mail Service from Wisconsin to the UK!! But I have to ask, what is "yellow cake mix"?? Is it like a basic sponge cake? If you need an Official Cake Taster then I am first in line for the vacancy. Good luck with the doc tomorrow sweetie - it's looking like I may have to postpone mine. Big hugs Sxx
