It is cold this morning at 23 degrees and the sun is shining brightly. I am up early and have already made the lemon cream cheese bars to freeze for my son who is coming to see me this week. I have posted this recipe just about each time my son comes to visit. These are his very favorite. I have also arranged a personalized birthday cake for him.
Posting the recipe again for the 100th time..
