This is a very delicious recipe that came from a dear friend of mine, CJ. She made them for me earlier this year when I had company at my home. Every single person raved about the dessert so I had to ask her for the recipe. Talk about sweet butter goodness that will melt in your mouth. Each bite is moist and soft and it is so easy to make! They are quite rich so I usually cut my squares fairly small which means it makes a nice big plate of goodies. This is one of those “almost from scratch” recipes that can fool anyone into thinking you made them completely from scratch.

Here is what you will need:

For the base:

1 box of yellow cake mix

1 egg

1 stick of butter, melted

For the Topping:

8 oz cream cheese softened

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 stick butter, melted

16 oz powdered sugar

The Instructions:

For the Base: First, preheat your oven to 350 and lightly spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Then in a medium bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, egg, melted butter and mix well. Pat it into your pan. I like to put a little nonstick spray on my fingers and do it by hand.

For the topping: In a medium bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until it is smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla and butter and beat until it is all well blended. Last, add the powdered sugar slowly until you have a beautiful creamy consistency. Spread this over your cake mixtures and bake for about 40-50 minutes. Make sure you don’t over bake – they are “ooey gooey bars” and you want them to still be super moist. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, my oven cooks fast so I set the timer for 30 minutes and keep an eye out and judge by sight when to pull them out. You want them to be a nice, deep golden brown all over. It will look like they are not done – but trust your eyes – they are done. Let them sit for at least an hour before you cut them.
