Notes: THESE ARE SO GOOD! They didn’t get a 5 because the peach cream cheese melts in and you cant tell its there, but it makes the lemon bars way less tart and gives it something very special. I could eat a ton of these! It is a great snack for this beautiful sunny day and I am having trouble staying inside and waiting for them to cool!! Please make this recipe; it is so easy and so delicious. The peaches really change the whole flavor…so while your mouth waters, I’m going to go eat one out in the hammock!
