Lemon Pie Cookie Bars


  • 1 (2 Crusts) package Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts
  • 1 (8 Oz.) Package Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 (8 Oz.) Tub Cool Whip, Divided
  • 2 (3.4 Oz.) Boxes Instant Lemon Pudding, Dry

Preheat oven to 450F degrees. Line a 9×9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

STEP 1: Unroll both refrigerated pie crusts. Press both pie crusts into the bottom of the prepared pan, folding pie crust edges down. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

STEP 2: In a medium size bowl, mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, 1 cup of Cool Whip from the 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip. Spread on top of cooled pie crust

STEP 3: In a medium size bowl, whisk together instant lemon pudding mix, and cold milk until pudding is thick. Spread on top of cream cheese layer.


STEP 4: Spread remaining Cool Whip topping on top of lemon pudding layer and sprinkle with yellow colored sugar sprinkles.

STEP 5: Place pie bars in refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving. Remove cooled pie bars from the baking pan using the aluminum foil overhang on the sides.

STEP 6: Cut into squares. Use a very sharp knife and wipe off with a paper towel between each cut to make neat, even cuts.

*Store pie bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
