Gooey Lemon Bars

treats! 016

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

2 eggs

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.
