Butter Cake Bars

I had every intention of posting a recipe yesterday, but somehow the day got away before it actually happened.  It may be a day late, but I'm sure it will still taste just as good!  This is a recipe I prepared for my family this weekend.  Warning - this is a very rich dessert which equals delicious yumminess!  I cooked this for a little more than 45 minutes until it turned a nice golden brown on top.  However, I don't think the middle was quite done enough.  It is supposed to have a creamy middle, but mine was a little too creamy.  It may take a little trial and error to find the correct baking time for your oven, but I assure you, the taste was still amazing!  Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients for bottom layer:
1 box of yellow cake mix (1 pound)
4 ounces of butter, melted
1 egg
Ingredients for ooey gooey layer:
8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 pound (16 ounces) of powdered sugar
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8 x 8 inch pan with parchment paper.
2. Make the base first: mix together cake mix, butter and 1 egg.
3. Pat into pan, create an even layer.
4. Make the ooey gooey layer: Cream together the cream cheese, 2 eggs, sugar and vanilla.
5. Pour gooey layer over cake layer, spread to edges.
6. Bake for 45 minutes or until edges are golden brown, center should be a creamy yet solid consistency like cheesecake or heaven.
7. Cool completely in pan before cutting into 1-inch sqaures with a clean, dry knife. For best square results, pop into freezer and chill before slicing.

Wishing you a day full of blessings,
