Chess Squares

Following the Fried Green Tomatoes here's another Southern recipe -- I found this on Pintrest linked to this blog. There are apparently many name variations for this dessert including Neiman Marcus Brownies and Gooey Butter Cake.

-1 box yellow cake mix
-3 eggs
-8 oz cream cheese, softened
-1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
-4 cups (1 lb) powdered sugar

Mix one egg with the yellow cake mix. Add the melted butter to form a dough.

Press the dough into the bottom of a greased baking pan.

Mix the other two eggs with the soften cream cheese and powdered sugar.
Pour over the crust.
Put in the oven at 300 for 40-50 minutes.

This dessert was really sweet I don't know if I can eat another piece. If you like rich dessert I recommend this....mine also didn't set well...either we didn't bake it for long enough or something went wrong.
