Wheelie Wednesday - Barktoberfest Lemon Bars

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
You all know that this past Sunday, Maggie and Mitch went to Barktoberfest in Kent, Connecticut. They always take a dessert to share and Maggie and I helped mom make Lemon Bars to share!
Maggie wasn't too happy to hear that mom chose to make something lemon flavored seeing as that's her worst nightmare!We mixed the whole box of cake mix plus 1 egg and 1/2 cup of vegetable oil together very well. It's a very dry mixture so you have to stomp it into a 13" X 9" pan. It's impossible to be neat about spreading this mixture out so I used my paws! Yes, I washed them first - and we reserved 1 cup of this mixture to be sprinkled on the top later.
This pan goes into a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. When 15 minutes is up you take it out of the oven and set it on top of the stove to cool.
Meanwhile, you mix 8 ounces of cream cheese with 1/3 cup sugar and 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice together! This gets spread on top of the cookie crust after it's cooled off!
Holy cow, mom! Maggie is eating lemon! You got a picture for evidence, right?!
Here the cream cheese mixture has been spread on top of the baked crust and then we've sprinkled the remaining crumbly batter on top! It's ready for the oven again and it bakes for another 15 minutes!
All done and it's looking and smelling soooooooo yummy!
Maggie told me that this picture was taken early on and that by the time they left Barktoberfest there wasn't a crumb left! I guess the Lemon Bars were a hit!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn
