Lemon Curd Fluff Bars have a vanilla wafer crust topped with a tart and sweet lemon filling topped. These are unbelievably delicious.

I love lemon dessert. Spring always makes me think of light and bright lemon dessert recipes.

This is one of the easiest lemon desserts you can make. It has three simple ingredients for the filling. I made homemade vanilla wafer crust, but you could make or buy a graham cracker crust. My mother always made vanilla wafer crust for her lemon icebox pie. In my mind, that’s what goes with this lemon filling.

This recipe takes two easy steps. You’ll make the crust which consists of butter and vanilla wafers.

I make my Vanilla Wafer Pie Crust the same way as my Graham Cracker Pie Crust. Obviously, except I use vanilla wafers.

The second step is to make the filling. It is made up of just three ingredients: lemon curd, cream cheese, and whipped cream (or Cool Whip).

You’ll want the cream cheese to be at room temperature. It mixes much easier when it’s not really cold right out of the fridge. In fact, it’s almost impossible to mix cream cheese when it’s so. Therefore, sit the cream cheese on the countertop for a couple of hours before you intend to mix this recipe together.

When you’re ready, using an electric mixer mix the lemon curd and the cream cheese together until it’s smooth and creamy. Next, fold in the whipped cream or Cool Whip into the lemon curd mixture. Gently fold it in so that the mixture remains fluffy and light.
