Lemon {and Lime} Bars

On our awesome little get-away to San Diego, we stayed this this gorgeous home. It was like our own little family resort. It was amazing. And of course the house had it's own lemon orchard...yes, of course it did. They said we were welcome to take whatever we wanted! We make so many batches of fresh lemonade, which I promise is coming! 

But I was able to take some of these amazing lemons home and so I've been looking for yummy recipes to use them in. This was one. These little bars were so yummy. But you know I never can leave well-enough alone. So I added some lime zest and juice to it as well! Hey, also be aware that this needs a couple hours to cool before serving.


20 Vanilla Wafers, finely crushed (about 3/4 cup)
1/2 c.  flour
1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. cold margarine
1 (8-oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 T.  flour
3 T. lemon zest, divided
1/4 c.  fresh lemon juice
Zest & juice from one small lime 
1/4 tsp.  Baking Powder
2 tsp. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line an 8-inch square pan with foil. Mix wafer crumbs, 1/2 cup flour and brown sugar in medium bowl. Cut in margarine with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; press onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 15 min. 

Beat cream cheese with the granulated sugar with mixer until well blended. Add eggs and 2 T. flour; mix well. Blend in 1 T. lemon zest, lemon juice, lime zest, lime juice and baking powder; pour over crust. 

Bake 25 to 28 min. or until center is set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 2 hours. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and remaining zest before serving.
