No-Bake Lemon Cream Cheese Bars Recipe


Lemon seems to be the official flavor of spring, and it’s included in everything from casseroles to vegetables to desserts. No Bake Lemon Cream Cheese Bars are perfect to make in the spring; they are cool, light, lemony, and their preparation doesn’t heat up the kitchen. The crust on these tart bars is made with crushed shortbread cookies; the filling is an easy microwaved lemon curd swirled with a whipped cream cheese mixture. The three components are very easy, as well as quick, and the bars can be made several days ahead of serving.

Perfect to serve at any spring or summer gathering, these bars are refreshing and attractive. They will keep a week or more if covered tightly and refrigerated.
