  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 9 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • To make the crust generously spray a jellyroll pan with Pam. With an electric mixer, blend dry cake mix, melted butter, and 1 egg on low speed until moistened. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes, and pat onto bottom and side of the jellyroll pan, set aside. 
  • To make the filling mix 3 1/3 cups powdered sugar, eggs, vanilla, and cream cheese until ingredients are moistened. Carefully cover the mixer with a large, clean kitchen towel. Turn mixer on high for 5 minutes. Turn mixer to low speed and remove towel.

Pour mixture over crust in pan and spread evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, or until golden brown. When cool, slice into squares.
