Gooey Butter Cakes

I went to a lunch bunch this last fall and a lady brought these yummy bar like cookies. She told me they are a Paula Deen recipe. You can do a search for it online and it will bring up lots of recipes that are really about the same. But here is the recipe my friend gave me.


1 box yellow cake mix

1 egg

1/2 c. butter melted


1 (8oz) pkg. Cream cheese, softened

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

2 c. powdered sugar

1/2 c. butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 pan.

With an electric mixer, combine cake mix, egg and melted butter. Pat into prepared pan and set aside.

Still using electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth, add eggs and vanilla. Dump in powdered sugar and beat well. Reduce speed of mixer and slowly pour in the melted butter. Pour filling onto cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Check often since oven temperatures vary. Cool completely and enjoy!
