  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 8-inch square pan with cooking parchment paper, leaving a few inches overhanging on each side. Spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix cookie mix, softened butter, sour cream and 1 of the eggs. Spread two-thirds of the mixture into pan.
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat cream cheese with remaining egg, the granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons of the lemon curd. Spread mixture evenly over cookie layer. Drop remaining lemon curd by dollops over cream cheese mixture; swirl with a knife. Drop remaining cookie dough by dollops on top.
  • 4
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until edges are golden and center is set. Cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours before cutting and serving. Can be made ahead and refrigerated overnight. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.

  • Using parchment with an overhang makes for easy removal of the bars. I like to secure the extra parchment with metal binder clips. You can use foil instead of parchment if you prefer.
