Easy Lemon Bars

These are not your usual lemons bars. I like them but they didn't go over well with anyone else. I ended up eating almost the whole pan myself. However having to eat that many bars by myself means I don't think I'll be making them again.

So Easy Slap Ya Momma Lemon Bars

1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
   Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Add the egg and oil; mix until well blended. Mixture will be slightly dry. Reserve one cup for the topping, and pat the rest into an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.
   Now, bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Place aside to cool 15mins. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese with the sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Spread the mixture evenly over the baked crust. Take the reserved crumble cake mix mixture over the top.
   Bake for an additional 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until filling is set and the topping is lightly toasted. Cool before cutting into bars. Refrigerate leftovers.
