In a mixing bowl, blend dry cake mix, butter and 1 egg. Press into an ungreased 9x13 pan.
Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Gradually blend in the powdered sugar. Stir in the lemon zest and lemon juice until combined. Reserve 1/2 cup of mixture in refrigerator for later use.
Beat the remaining 2 eggs and add the vanilla. Beat egg mixture into remaining cream cheese mixture until well blended. Spread cream cheese mixture over the cake mixture.
Bake @ 350 degrees until set, approximately 25 - 30 minutes. Cool the pan completely on a wire rack. Spread the refrigerated cream cheese mixture over the cooled bars. Refrigerate until firm and then cut into squares to serve.
