Gooey Bars

Can we say FAB.U.LOUS!? 

What an easy and impressive dessert this is!

I got the recipe from a friend at church, after she served it for refreshments!
After just one bite, I knew this was going to be a MUST MAKE recipe. 

Gooey Bars are what I choose to serve as samples at the Montpelier Library Fall  Festival in October. I heard lots of "MMMMM's"...we even had a discussion about renaming them "OH MY! BARS".... (wink)

I love that it has 6 simple ingredients and can be made with little fuss. 
It can certainly be made a day or two ahead of time too. 

You'll want to make this some time over the holidays, maybe even a few times...once you get a taste of the ease of making it, and the irresistible flavor that makes you want M-M-More! 

A simple cake mix base (with or without nuts) with cream cheese, powdered sugar & egg topping....DEEEEELECTABLE!



GOOEY BARS

1 (16 - 18 ozs) box yellow cake mix
3/4 c. nuts, optional
1/2 c. butter (or margarine), softened
1 (1 lb.) box powdered sugar
(about 3-3/4 c.) 
1 (8 ozs) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9" X 13" baking dish. In medium bowl, combine cake mix, nuts and butter (will be crumbly).  Press into prepared pan.  In same bowl, mix together powdered sugar, cream cheese & egg; beat until smooth. Spread over bottom layer. Bake 35 - 40 minutes, or until golden brown.  Cool and cut into small squares.
