This recipe comes together in a matter of minutes since it starts with a lemon cookie mix.  Then you add in a few extra ingredients and you have a rich, delicious and creamy lemon bar.  I thought about adding only butter to the mix, however I decided to add in some cream cheese to take it over the top.  It really makes the crust and crumble quite unique!
