i can’t believe this is the first time that i have made these, especially since i have been eating them for the better part of my life thanks in part to the heir to blair’s momma, being my girl scout leader since the 4th grade & the heir to blair herself, being one of my bffs since the 4th grade. in fact, not too long ago, the heir to blair and i polished off far too many of these, for breakfast, while chatting in her office.
they’re buttery, gooey, cakey & heavenly. oh. and easy. i bet you could mix everything together without even setting down your wine.
from the momma
1 stick butter, softened
1 box yellow cake mix
1 16oz box confectioners sugar
8oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1. preheat oven to 325°. in a medium bowl, mix together butter, cake mix & one egg with a wooden spoon. press firmly into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan to form a flat crust.
2. in a separate medium bowl, beat together confectioner’s sugar, cream cheese, 2 eggs, and vanilla with an electric hand mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer (a hand mixer is fine for this, really). pour over unbaked crust.
3. bake for one hour. remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting into squares & serving.
