In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Mix in the lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract until well combined.

Pour the cream cheese mixture over the slightly cooled crust, spreading it evenly.

Prepare the Lemon Topping:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar and flour.

Add the eggs, lemon juice, and lemon zest, whisking until smooth and well combined.

Pour the lemon mixture over the cream cheese layer in the baking pan.

Bake the Bars:

Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is set and slightly golden.

Remove from the oven and let the bars cool completely in the pan.


Once cooled, refrigerate the bars for at least 2 hours to allow them to set fully.

Before serving, dust the top with powdered sugar.

Cut into squares and enjoy.
