Lemon Squares are one of those sweet and tart delights that are perfect during the summer months (though I will make them year round). I love them for a tea party as well. These Cream Cheese Lemon Squares add another element to the traditional Lemon Square.

They’re also easy to make. Using a boxed cake mix for the crust is a great time saver.
