Lemon Cream Cheese Bars, with Recipe
I have a BUNCH of Cream Cheese I need to get to using. The first recipe I made with it was Lemon Bars, from KraftFoods.com. It wasn't quite what I was looking for- but the guys smashed it so that's what counts. =-)
cups graham cracker crumbs
cup butter, melted
pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
Tbsp. zest and 1/2 cup juice from 2lemons
cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
cup fresh raspberries
HEAT oven to 325ºF.
LINE 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Mix graham crumbs, butter and sugar until blended; press onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10 min.
MEANWHILE, beat cream cheese with mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in milk. Add egg yolks; mix well. Blend in lemon zest and juice; pour over crust.
BAKE 20 to 22 min. or until center is set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 2 hours.
USE foil handles to remove dessert from pan before cutting into bars. Serve topped with COOL WHIP and raspberries.
