This weekend we hosted our small group at our home and I was looking for an easy dessert to put with our meal. Few ingredients, easy to put together and offer a big punch; that's what I needed since most of our day was spent at a soccer tournament. I googled cookie bars and came across this cookie bar called by many different names, but I think Ooey Gooey bars best suits it.
It only takes 5 ingredients: yellow cake mix, eggs, powdered sugar, butter and cream cheese.
Here is the recipe:
1 box yellow cake mix
8 oz cream cheese, softened
½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
4 cups (1 lb) powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 300 and generously coat a 9×13-inch dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix cake mix, melted butter and one egg to a soft dough. Press into the bottom of the pan.
Mix powdered sugar, softened cream cheese and remaining two eggs until smooth, about 1-2 mins. Pour on top of crust.
Bake at 300 for 40-50 minutes until top is golden brown.
Oh man! These were golden brown , warm, gooey, and buttery! Really just heavenly. My only tip is they did need to sit out of the oven for a few minutes to congeal. When I first pulled them out, they seemed too runny, but not for long.
Really very yummy!
Quick and easy to throw together. You can see I had my little baking helper again!
