This are hands-down the best lemon bars I have ever had! I have no idea where Mom got this recipe, but it's amazing.
1 package Lemon Cake Mix
1/2 c butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
Combine and mix with fork. Press down in a 9x13 pan with greased bottom.
2-3 cups powdered sugar
3-4 T butter
3-5 drops Yellow Food coloring
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix powdered sugar and butter. Add enough lemon juice to form right consistency of thick frosting. Then mix in cream cheese and yellow food coloring. Set aside 1 cup of frosting to spread on top later. Add eggs to remaining frosting mixture and beat til fluffy. Spread on top of cake mix in the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes (every oven is different . . . you don't want them to be overdone, so watch them carefully). Let cool completely and then spread reserved frosting and cheese mixture on top.
*In the picture, I forgot to add yellow food coloring to the frosting, so that is why it looks a little pale!
