    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly butter a 33cm x 23cm oblong cake tin.
    2. Whisk together 1 1/2 cup flour and icing sugar in a mixing bowl. Cut in the cold butter with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press the crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared baking dish to form a base.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
    4. Whisk together 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, lemon zest and lemon juice in a bowl. Pour lemon mixture into the prepared base. Skim off any bubbles from the surface of the filling. Mix the cream cheese and 1 cup sugar in a bowl until well blended. Whisk in 2 eggs then spread over the lemon mixture. The mixtures will separate during baking.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is set, about 30 minutes.

    Made these last night and they were very, very good. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because there wasn't enough lemon flavor for me. When I make this again I will double the lemon mixture. The cream cheese mixture is super thick and creamy so it can definitely stand the larger lemon amount. Very excited to have found a lemon bar recipe that's a little different from the rest. I think I will also try it with Key lime juice. I think this would be beautiful for a wedding or baby shower.  -  17 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These turned out great. A lot of steps but well worth it. I topped mine with a thin layer of sweetened sour cream (about a cup of sour cream w/ confectioners sugar to taste and a drop...litterally a drop...of lemon extract). I only topped it because I liked the more finished look. These were a hit with our family and friends. Great refreshing summer dessert w/o instant pudding or cool whip! (no offense to those desserts, I make them too!)  -  17 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent recipe. I put the cream cheese on top of the lemon mixture and thought there was no way this was going to set and separate. I was wrong, turned out great and everyone loved it. Whelma  -  13 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
