Claim Jumperesque Lemon Bar Brulee

Crust: 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar, pinch salt, 1/2 cup butter. Mix together with your fingers to form into a crumbly consistency. Put in square pan, push into pan lightly, then put in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove, let cool completely.

1st layer: beat together 1 cube of cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tbsp lemon juice, and one carton of cool whip (or you can fold in a few cups of whipped whip cream). When well-mixed, spread over cooled crust, place in refrigerator til firmed.

2nd layer: either make a lemon curd yourself (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsgx6NeHlWk) or just buy a jar of lemon curd at the store (IGA even has one from England that tastes good). Spread this on the fully set first layer.

Before serving, spread about 1/3 cup brown sugar in a very even layer over the lemon curd, and then broil for about 2 minutes to make the brulee. Make sure to watch that it doesn't burn too much, but that all the sugar melts (get about 3 inches from the broiler). I guess you could also use a cook's torch if you have one.

Serve either plain or with a raspberry sauce.
