Cheese Bars

Everybody should get to eat these Cheese Bars at least once in their lifetime. They are so good! And since I'm in a generous mood right now I'll share the recipe with you.

Cheese Bars

1 box yellow cake mix
1 beaten egg
1 stick softened butter

Mix the crust ingredients well and then pat into the bottom and about a 1/4" up the sides of an ungreased 9"x13" pan. You will want to dip your spoon in water every once in a while as you pat it in so it doesn't stick and make a frustrating mess. If you're feeling a little less than proper go ahead and just use your hand, it's much easier that way, but be sure to dip it in water occasionally.

Cheese Filling:
2 beaten eggs
1- 8 oz package softened cream cheese
2-3/4 cup powdered sugar

Beat it all together and pour into crust.
Bake at 325 for 40-45 minutes.
Let it cool and cut in squares. I know the picture I'm showing I would have been able to get four squares out of it, but trust me, once you've tasted this you will want a piece at least this big.
These are so hard to share, but if you do you'll be sure to be rewarded with happy people.
Very simple, yet oh so yummy. Good Luck!
