Lemon. Cheesecake. Crumble. Bars. 4 words to describe an absolutely heavenly summer dessert!
Last week was the official first day of summer, although that is basically a joke to people who live in Florida like me. It’s already been summer for months here!
When the weather is this hot, all I crave are fruity desserts like these lemon bars.
Classic lemon bars are one of my favorite treats, so I gave them a cheesecake twist for this dessert. These bars are super sweet with a light, lemon flavor that is so refreshing.
My Lemon Cheesecake Crumble Bars start with a buttery shortbread base. It’s made with just 4 ingredients and only take a minute to mix up.
Next comes the star of the show: the lemon cheesecake layer! It’s made with cream cheese and features lemon juice and lemon zest to give it a nice, tart flavor.
And finally, a sugary crumble on top for a little bit of crunch and extra sweetness.
