Lemon Cream-Cheese Bars

These scrumptious bars have become one of my most-requested potluck favorites. So tasty and yet, so simple!

1 box lemon cake mix 
1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1 T lemon juice
powdered sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix cake mix with 1 egg and 1/3 cup oil until crumbly. Set aside 1 cup of the crumb mix and pat the rest into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, and remaining egg with an electric mixer until creamy. Spread over the baked crust. Sprinkle reserved crumbs on top and bake for 15 minutes.

Allow to cool completely, then sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into bars.
