Recipe by Chris from Kansas
My family loves these. The recipe is very similar to gooey butter cake, but I think it uses a little less powdered sugar so it can be cut into bars. Same great flavor, but easier to eat.
- 1⁄2 cup cold butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 (18 1/4 ounce) package yellow cake mix
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- additional powdered sugar
