I am hands-down a chocolate dessert lover, but I have a special place in my heart for all things lemon.
1/2 c butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
Combine and mix with fork. Press down in a 9×13 pan with greased bottom. Set aside while you work on next layers:
3-4 T butter
3-5 drops Yellow Food coloring
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix powdered sugar and butter. Add enough lemon juice to form the consistency of thick frosting. Then mix in cream cheese and yellow food coloring. Set aside 1 cup of frosting to spread on top after baking (be sure to not skip this step!). 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 mixture on top.
