    Chef on the coast's Note:

    There are a handful of Mr. Food's creations my family loves. This is one of them! I like making this in the summer. Lemon and cream cheese equal summertime for me.

      I love just about anything with lemon and so does my wife as long as the lemon isn't overpowering. These were perfect for us. I didn't have a yellow cakemix in my pantry but I did have a white one with pudding. I can't wait to try it with a yellow mix. Thanks for posting !

      I bought a cake mix especially for this recipe Chef on the Coast, as I always make my own cakes from scratch; but, I wanted to follow the recipe exactly! I made this as posted, and I must have made an error somewhere, as the cream cheese mixture sank to the bottom in the middle portion of my lemon squares, I did bake it initially for 15 minutes too! It STILL tasted wonderful however, and we enjoyed TWO slices with a cuppa tea after lunch today! Next time I will increase the lemon by at least 4 teaspoons, as we BOTH love lemon and it was not as lemony as we hoped. This was a light and tasty treat, a Sunday lunch treat and was enjoyed nevertheless! Many thanks, made for Aus/NZ recipe swap and a recipe that I will try again. FT:-) PS: this made 18 squares for me.
