Lemon Cheesecake Bars

There is something singularly compelling about the flavor of lemon cheesecake bars, possibly the double tang of tart lemon against cream cheese. Any way it comes, though, most of us will welcome the creamy smoothness of a cheesecake with pretty much any flavor it comes in. As our blogger recommends, remember that this cake is best served cold. So make it in the evening and serve it the next day. Or make it in the morning and let it chill all day until after dinner (you can steal a piece for afternoon tea, of course—bakers always get dibs).

This recipe is a twist on the classic cheesecake, simplifying the steps so that the entire cake is made in one step. It does have three layers, but they are very clearly explained on the website, along with terrific photos, so you cannot go wrong. Even new bakers can try this one. The subtle flavor of vanilla dominates the first layer, and then the middle and upper layers do double duty with lemon in both of them. This type of layering process really boosts the lemon flavor and ensures that each bite and layer emphasizes the great tangy taste. There is also a surprise ingredient that underscores and smooths out the lemon in this recipe.

All in all, this is a great, quick and affordable way to get the cheesecake taste and texture with a lot less work. It is a good treat to make for the school bake sale, take to picnics or to make when you want something that’s yummy, but you do not want to spend a lot of time (or you just don’t have the time!) to pull it together. It’s also a great treat to make on a Saturday when the family is home and just pull them together for a few minutes to sit and have a family chat and something good to eat. Try it today!
