The summer heat kills our desire to bake but this sweet treat is quick and easy. This Chess Squares recipe was a winner during our summer beach trip, with our oldest and dearest friends.
1 box yellow cake mix
8 oz cream cheese softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
4 cups (1 lb) powered sugar
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and spray a 9 x 13 cooking pan with spray or coat it well with oil. Mix cake mix, melted butter and one egg to make a soft dough. Press into the bottom of the pan. Mix powered sugar, softened cream cheese and remaining two eggs until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Pour on top of crust. Bake at 300 degrees for 40-50 minutes until top is golden brown.
