Lemon Brownies

It's a LONG weekend!  And it couldn't have come at a better time!!
 
I'm tired.
 
A good fun-filled, no responsibility weekend is just what I need.  This school stuff is wearing me out, and it's only been 2 weeks! 
 
I'm thinkin' some good ol' last days of summer fun with my family is in order.  Sleep in and then go and do at our own pace....YES PLEASE!!
 
And of course we'll add some wonderful foods into the mix.  What's Labor Day weekend without some grillin'??  Here's some great grillin' recipes for you.  And of course you'll need a dessert that screams "end of summer".
 
So here you go!
 
These are definately the best chilled.  And if you can, make them the day before you want to serve them.  They just get creamier & creamier!  Just don't let them go too long or you'll have something pretty gross on your hands!:)
 
Lemon Brownies

1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 box lemon cake mix
4 eggs, divided
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon extract
Additional powdered sugar (optional)

Lightly spray a 9 x 13 cake pan with cooking spray. 
 
Mix melted butter, cake mix, and 1 egg together.  Spread onto the bottom of the greased pan.  This can get a little tricky, since the cake mixture is sticky...just do your best, it doesn't need to look pretty just make sure it covers the entire bottom of the pan.

Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar 3 eggs & lemon extract until smooth. Pour over cake crust in cake pan.
 
Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown on top. Watch it closely near the end so it doesn't burn.
 
Let cool before cutting.  Store in the fridge.
