Lemon Bars

Cream Cheese Lemon Bar

I have friends who are have different Gluten allergies so I created these treats to share for with them. I sometimes double the cream cheese layer so it is more like lemon cheese cake. When doing so add 5 to 10 minutes to the baking time.

Ingredients

Crust
3/4 cup Unsalted Butter softened
1/2 cup Pure Cane Sugar
1 cup Almond Flour
1 cup Coconut Flour

Cream Cheese Layer
8 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 cup Pure Cane Sugar
2 Eggs

Lemon Layer
1 1/2 cups Pure Cane Sugar
2 T Corn Starch
1/2 Lemon Juice
40 drops doTerra Lemon Essential Oil

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Crust
Cut together butter, sugar, almond flour, and coconut flour until crumbly. Press into a 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

Cream Cheese Layer
Mix together cream cheese, sugar and eggs. Pour over crust.

Lemon Layer
In a metal, ceramic, or glass bowl combined all remaining ingredients and pour gently over cream cheese layer. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting and serving.
