Cheesecake Lemon Bars from Cooking Classy™

These layered cheesecake lemon bars are perfect for your next summer picnic. You’ll love how the sweet, crumbly shortbread layer, the sticky sweet lemon layer, the creamy cheesecake layer, and the mellow sour cream layer melt in your mouth. We recommend having this treat with a tall glass of milk.
