      Pleasant-tasting, but rather bland. To get a real lemony flavor, I'd double the amount of lemon in the cheese mixture, and maybe use a lemon cake mix, rather than yellow. I also thought about making it using the specified amount of lemon and a Betty Crocker chocolate fudge cake mix. It wouldn't exactly be "lemon" cheese bars, but I bet it would be good. Also, I wound up baking it in a 9x9 inch pan, because I couldn't imagine how the cheese mixture could spread over 9x13 inches; even in the 9x9 pan, it was fairly thin. Another time, I think I would double the amounts on the ingredients of the cheese mixture and do everything else as specified, including the pan size. If so, it might be necessary to up the second baking time a little to be sure the cheese mixture got cooked through.

      I actually tried recipe 70258 for lemon cheese bars by Melanie Davis. Her recipe is not identical, because it uses lemon extract and regular yellow cake mix with no pudding in it. I brought it to my book club and asked them how they liked it and they said it was a little dry and not lemony enough. I agreed. So I would make this again, but I would double all the filling ingredients and would use a lemon cake mix, as suggested in reviews. It would be more like a cheesecake this way.
