Strawberry-Cream Cheese Bars

Strawberry-Cream Cheese Bars created by Chef on the coast

I was looking for something to do with a strawberry cake mix that I had hanging around. I found these in a cookbook, Quick Fixes with Cake Mixes. As the into says "if you like cheescake or pastries with cheese filling, you'll really like these..."

    This recipe is a good balance of topping making it more cheesecake tasting. Many other recipes call for 4 cups of powder sugar in the topping and 2 eggs in the batter that seemed to brown really dark. This recipe is my favorite and a keeper! I made a batch of those strawberry shortcake crumbles (like the Good Humor Ice Cream Bars) and added on top half way through baking. WOW! I like to eat them frozen and I now get requests to make these over and over!!

    I read some comments and reduced sugar quite a bit, because I like things less sweet than other people. Otherwise, I tried to keep it as written. I made a full batch, but decided to use 1/4 as much sugar, after combining the cake mix with butter and the cream cheese. I tasted the batter and then added what seemed like enough sugar and the eggs. I only had a 7x11 pan, but the batter was still pretty thinly spread. The bottoms of my bars got burned.
