Chess Bars

I finally did some baking this weekend, and I made this recipe twice! It's one of my favorites, but my mom had to convince me to try them when I was growing up...I thought they had coconut in them (and I've never liked coconut). I'm glad she convinced me! They're both delicious and addictive. (Consider yourself warned.) At least you don't have to worry about dirtying your stand mixer for this recipe. I even use the same bowl to mix the crust and filling. Less mess to clean makes this recipe even sweeter.

Preheat oven to 325F.

For the crust:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick (8 Tbsp/4 oz) butter, softened

Mix above ingredients with hand mixer until all of the cake mix is moistened. Spray a long sheet pan (at least 12" x 18") with non-stick spray. Press cake mix into the bottom of the pan, covering all of the surface with a thin layer.

For the Filling/Topping:
1 1lb box of confectioners sugar (10X)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix ingredients together with hand mixer until well blended. Pour this over the crust.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the filling is golden brown on top. Cool, cut, and serve.
