Wonderful and easy lemon bars that everybody loves.


1 (18-1/4) package lemon cake mix
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 large package lemon flavor pudding mix (NOT instant)
1-1/2 tsps. grated lemon rind
lemon glaze (see below)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 degrees for glass dish). In large mixer bowl, combine cake mix, oil and egg; beat on medium speed until crumbly. Reserving 1-1/2 cups crumb mixture, press remainder firmly on bottom of greased 13" x 9" baking pan. In small mixer bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk and pudding mix until smooth. Stir in rind. Spread over prepared crust. Top with reserved crumb mixture. Bake 20-25 minute or until set and golden brown on top. Cool and drizzle with lemon glaze. Cut into bars. Store covered at room temperature. LEMON Glaze: In small bowl, combine 1 cup powered sugar, with 4-5 tsps. lemon juice OR water, mix until smooth. Drizzle over cooled bars. This makes 24 large or 36 small bars. These are really good!
