What I Love: Lemon-Raspberry Cream Bars

Hey Everyone!
This recipe is called "Lemon-Raspberry Cream Bars" and they are SO scrumptious!
A soft romantic treat for your loved ones.

Lemon bars are a breeze to make when cake mix gives you a jumpstart. Raspberry preserves and cream cheese bump up the yum factor.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Success:
Don't be tempted to use reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufch√Ętel) instead of regular cream cheese. The white chocolate-cream cheese filling may not get firm enough, even when refrigerated.
Variation:
For Lemon-Strawberry Cream Bars, use strawberry preserves instead of the raspberry.
Special Touch:
Present these pretty spring bars on a cake pedestal decorated with fresh raspberries and mint leaves.
