Lemon bars are a breeze to make when cake mix gives you a jumpstart. Raspberry preserves and cream cheese bump up the yum factor.
May 16, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ lemon cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup raspberry preserves
  • 1 pkg (250 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 340 g white chocolate baking bars, chopped
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons icing sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 15x10x1-inch pan.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix cake mix, butter and eggs with spoon until well blended. With floured fingers, press evenly in pan.
  • 3
    Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown and toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Spread evenly with preserves. Cool 30 minutes.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and milk with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth; set aside.
  • 5
    In 1-quart saucepan, melt white chocolate over low heat, stirring frequently. Add warm melted white chocolate to cream cheese mixture; beat on medium speed until creamy (mixture may look slightly curdled). Carefully spread over preserves. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until set.
  • 6
    Sprinkle icing sugar over top. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Don't be tempted to use reduced-fat cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese. The white chocolate-cream cheese filling may not get firm enough, even when refrigerated.
  • Tip 2
    For Lemon-Strawberry Cream Bars, use strawberry preserves instead of the raspberry.
  • Tip 3
    Present these pretty spring bars on a cake pedestal decorated with fresh raspberries and mint leaves.
