Recipe Review - Butter Bars

Here's another recipe that we all enjoy, so thought I'd share. These bars are delicious straight out of the oven hot and ooey gooey, but they are equally delicious at room temperature or chilled. I know you can make these bars with a chocolate cake mix instead of yellow, but I've yet to try that version.

Ultimate Butter Bars 

Ingredients - 1 box yellow cake mix, 1 stick butter, 3 eggs, 8oz cream cheese, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 cups powdered sugar (plus more for dusting)

Beat room temperature butter. Add 1 egg and cake mix. Combine until all mixed and stuck together. Press this mixture into a 9x13 glass pan.

Beat room temperature cream cheese. Add the other 2 eggs, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Mix. Pour this on top of the cake mix layer in the pan.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 - 35 minutes. The center won't look set, but it's done! It's supposed to be gooey! Just sprinkle with powdered sugar while it is still hot, and you're ready to enjoy. Refridgerate leftovers if you have any!
