Gooey Butter Cake Bars


There is a reason these are called butter bars.  One whole stick of butter for the entire pan.  Have your heart attack now, or just get over it and have one.

I made these for the fish fry we went to on Saturday night.  Even though there were about 10 desserts there I still only managed to come home with one row left of these bars.  Which is probably a good thing considering I'd like to have a "sweet bite" after every meal.  Like it is a rule or something.


Gooey Butter Cake Bars
Bottom layer:
1 yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1 stick butter, melted

Top layer:
4 oz. cream cheese
1 egg
1/2 lb. powdered sugar (1/2 of bag)

Mix bottom layer ingredients and spread on the bottom of a 9x13 greased baking dish.  With a mixer combine top layer ingredients and spread on top of bottom layer.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Allow to cool and cut into bars.

Since I'm pretty sure I had my allotted fat intake for the year, I am going on a walk with a friend and her boy this morning, and then will hopefully eat a healthy lunch.  Preferably something green, and not white and creamy resembling butter.

Do you indulge in desserts or shy away?

I definitely indulge.
