Lemon Cheesecake Bars

These creamy bars combine two of my favorite things - tangy lemon and cheesecake.  They are really easy to make but taste like they required hard work.  I have to refrain from making these every week.  I'd like to but my hips wouldn't appreciate it!!

Lemon Cheesecake Bars
(recipe from allrecipes.com)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, cubed
*Whisk flour and sugar together.  Cut in butter.  Press into a 9x13 pan that has been greased.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
*Whisk together.  Pour over baked crust.  Skim off bubbles.
  • 2 (8oz) packages cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
*Mix cream cheese and sugar.  Whisk in eggs.  Spread over lemon mixture.
*Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes until filling is set.  The lemon layers will separate as it bakes.

I make half the recipe in an 8x8 inch pan.  I also use light cream cheese.
