Lemon Cheesecake Bars Recipe

I recently realized that I had an overabundance of lemons. 

I think that I became obsessed with lemons because I love having them on my kitchen countertop. The pop of color adds a lot of brightness and happiness to my kitchen. 

But since I absolutely hate to waste food I knew that I needed to come up with a recipe that used lemons. 

In an effort to save money, I searched my refrigerator and pantry to see what ingredients I had available.

I discovered that I had the ingredients to make Lemon Cheesecake Bars.

I could not wait to make these because I knew that the lemon flavor mixed with the cream cheese was going to be amazing. 

Lemon Cheesecake Bars Ingredients:

  • 1 package of graham crackers
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4-6 tablespoons of melted butter (I used Shamy Honey Butter- Cinnamon & Brown Sugar)
  • (2) 8oz packages of cream cheese- softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • Juice from 1 lemon or more if desired
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Lemon Cheesecake Bars Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Press parchment paper into a square pan – I used a 9×6 pan
  • Spray with nonstick spray
  • Crush your graham crackers into fine crumbs, I crushed in a ziplock bag
  • Combine your graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter in a small bowl.
  • Spread evenly over parchment paper
  • Bake for 5 minutes

  • Let cool
  • Prepare cheesecake filling
  • Beat cream cheese until smooth
  • Add egg, lemon juice, lemon zest, flour, and sugar, mix until smooth
  • Pour mixture evenly over the crust
  • Bake for 25 minutes
  • Sit at room temperature for 20-25 minutes
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight
  • Add extra zest over bars if desired before serving
