I am hands-down a chocolate dessert lover, but I have a special place in my heart for all things lemon. 🙂 My mom has been making these lemon bars for a long time and she always gets requests to bring them to parties or showers. They are my favorite lemon bar ever- I think it’s the lemon frosting on top. If you are a lemon-lover like myself, you have to give these a try!

Gooey Lemon Bars Recipe
15 minPrep Time 30 minCook Time
45 minTotal Time
1 (15.25 ounce) box lemon cake mix 1/2 cup butter 1 egg, slightly beaten
3 cups powdered sugar 4 Tablespoons butter, softened Lemon juice 3-5 drops yellow food coloring 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened 2 eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all of the ingredients for the cake layer in a mixing bowl. Press down in a 9x13-inch baking pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl combine powdered sugar and butter. Add enough lemon juice to form the consistency of a thick frosting. Beat in cream cheese and yellow food coloring until smooth. 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 until fluffy. Spread on top of cake mix in the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until barely golden brown. Let cool completely and then spread reserved frosting mixture on top and serve.
