From Pillsbury.com. I haven't tried these yet, but wanted to post for safekeeping as they seem to be different from others posted here with an additional topping layer.

Delicious! Used the yellow cake mix for this recipe, as I was concerned that a lemon cake mix would add too much lemon flavor, and it turned out just right. I have a Church potluck coming up and I plan to take this dish! Thanks for a great post! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag game, November, 2011.
