Key Ingredients You’ll Need

Lemon: Will need lemon cake mix, lemon instant pudding mix, and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Cream cheese: This will be added to make the cheesecake filling that is swirled into the dessert. You can use low fat if you prefer, but do not use fat free.


Sugar: Will need granulated sugar for the dough and powdered sugar for the lemon glaze.

Flour: I like to use all purpose flour for best results. This will be used in the cream cheese filling.
