These are divine! Sort of a cross between a traditional lemon bar and a great lemon cake, how awesome is that? The recipe is from the “Six Sisters’ Stuff”. They were all gone by the end of the night. I need to make them again soon!
1 lemon cake mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg, slightly beaten
Combine above and mix with fork. (I did it in with my mixer.) Press down in 9 x 13″ pan with greased bottom.
2 – 3 cups powdered sugar (I used 3)
3 – 4 tablespoons butter (I used 4)
lemon juice (I think I ended up using the juice from 2 small lemons)
3 – 5 drops yellow food coloring (I used a lot more than this)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
Preheat oven to 350. Mix powdered sugar and butter. Add enough lemon juice to form consistency of thick frosting. Mix in cream cheese and yellow food coloring. Set aside 1 cup of frosting to spread on later. Add eggs to remaining frosting mixture and beat til fluffy. Spread on top of cake mix in pan and bake for 25 – 30 minutes. Let cool completely and then spread reserved frosting on top.
