Lemon Cheese Squares

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Bill says that if you have any questions feel free to email him - click here. Bill had this to say:

"It was a Saturday Morning at exactly 9.00am when my opponent and I each put out a plate of three dozen bars and waited to see which plate would be cleaned off first by 25 hungry college students. Debbie went with the old stand by of chocolate and nuts but I tried something different....... It was close, but once again I proved that grumpy old men can bake ".


1 x 18.5oz. box golden cake mix
3 large eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted (but you don't have to)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 8oz. package cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tbsp grated lemon peel
1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350º F.
