Easy Cheesecake Lemon Bars

Recipe was found on the side of a box of Pillsbury Moist Supreme Lemon Cake Mix. I debated about posting, as there are similar recipes already in the Zaar database that use powdered sugar instead of the canned frosting in the cheesecake layer. I prepared these as a quick, last minute offering for Hubby to take to a local function, and didn't get to taste myself. However, he told me that my pan was one of the first things empty on the dessert table. I hope that means they were good. :)

Very good and easy. People who love lemon really go for this. I had some dehydrated lemon peel in my spice drawer, so I added some to the base layer. Yum!

Not great, but not bad. I took to a pot-luck and only four pieces were eaten. Maybe it was because I made it in the wrong season. I decided to make this because I had all the ingredients and it was very easy.
