Recipe by Heather Dee

My mom has made these amazing cookies as long as I can remember. These cookies are always on the list of desserts we make for Christmas in our family. They are absolutely wonderful.

These are very yummy. My Mom has made them for years as well, but we call them Texas Gold Bars. Very sweet & rich, but oh so good. Thanks for posting...I had lost my copy of the recipe. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour a 9"x13" pan.
  3. Mix together the first three ingredients. Do not use a mixer.
  4. Pour mixture into pan.
  5. Spread out evenly on bottom of pan with your hands.
  6. Make sure that the mixture is even, and packed pretty firm on the bottom of the pan.
  7. Set pan aside.
  8. Soften your 8 oz. cream cheese in the microwave. (I soften mine at 50% power for 30 seconds.).
  9. Using a mixer, combine the softened cream cheese, eggs, and confectioners sugar. (Gradually adding in the sugar so that it is easier to mix).
  10. Beat until smooth.
  11. Pour this mixture over the top of the crust already inside the pan.
  12. Bake in oven for 40-45 minutes.
  13. Sprinkle top with confectioners sugar.
