Pinterest Recipe of the Week- Lemon Cream Cheese Bars

Pinterest Recipe of the Week series is a way to test-drive all of the recipes I pin on Pinterest. I was finding that I was great at pinning tons of great looking things, but rarely got around to making them. Now I try to make at least one recipe each week that I’ve pinned- sometimes it’s a success, sometimes not so much…

Um, yeah. Wow is all I have to say about this week’s pick. I made these lemon cream cheese bars and oh my, were they good. Mouth-watering good.

I bake very little- its just not my thing and the last thing I need sitting around my house is a bunch of sweets. But ever since I’d seen these yummy looking little things on Pinterest I knew I needed to make them at some point. They were calling to me.

When we got invited to a friend’s pot-luck birthday party I figured it was the perfect time to try them out. (I also brought these cuban sliders and they were a hit) The lemon cream cheese bars were delicious- not too sweet, not too tangy, but smooth and creamy and just right. They were also super quick and easy to make. (I put them together in 10 mins and just popped them in the oven for 30 mins)

If you are a fan of lemon desserts, definitely give these a try.

Bon appetite!
