4 of 101 Things To Do With A Cake Mix

Cheesecake Bars

Bottom Layer:
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 cube of margarine, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg, beaten

Top Layer:

  • 1 pound powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add cake mix and beaten egg to melted margarine. Spread mixture into bottom of a greased and floured 9 x 13-inch pan. In a separate bowl, mix together powdered sugar, eggs, softened cream cheese, and vanilla until smooth. Spread mixture over bottom layer. Bake 30-35 minutes.

I'm giving you an honest review on this one...... I didn't particularly care for these. They were very moist and looked really good. But there wasn't really a very strong cheesecake taste. They were a little too sweet as well.

EDIT: Hubby and Sweet Daughter loved these!

I have a recipe similar to this one , called "Neiman Marcus" bars. Evidently they were sold in the tearoom there, years ago!

I have an almost identical recipe, but here in St. Louis it is called a "gooey butter" coffee cake. Delicious and SWEET. It doesn't taste like cheesecake though.
