1 box lemon cake mix
1/3 cup butter or margarine - softened
8 ounces cream cheese - softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 lemon - grated
2 tablespoons lemon juice or 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a mixing bowl, blend dry cake mix, butter, and 1 egg.
Press into an ungreased 9 x 13 pan.
Beat the cream cheese until smooth.
Gradually blend in the powdered sugar.
Stir in lemon peel and lemon juice until smooth.
Reserve 1/2 cup of this mixture and refrigerate it for later use.
Beat the remaining 2 eggs, add the vanilla, and then beat this mixture into the remaining cream cheese mixture until well blended.
Spread over the cake mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees until set, approximately 25 to 30 minutes.
Spread the reserved cream cheese mixture onto the bars. Refrigerate until firm; then cut into squares and serve.
