What’s Cooking – Lemon Sqaures

For the most part the Christmas treats have been cooked and delivered.  I took tins of sweets to the office team and a few friends.  Pound cakes, cookies, brownies, sausage balls, sugar pecans and miscellaneous other dessert favorites.

This year, the favorite seemed to be Lemon Squares.  This is a simple recipe that mama and ma-ma used to make.

Lemon Squares:

1 box lemon cake mix

1 egg

1/2 cup butter

1 cup pecans, chopped

8 oz. cream cheese

2 eggs

1 box confectioners sugar

Stir together cake mix, 1 egg, butter and pecans.  Press into a greased 13 x 9 pan.  Mix cream cheese, 2 eggs and confectioners sugar.  Pour over crust and bake at #25 for 30 minutes or until brown.

(I didn’t take a photo… I know, I take photos of everything, but not this!  Below is a photo I snagged from Google, but it is representative of the Lemon Bar.)
