Chess Squares


Crust
1 box of butter yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick of butter, melted
1/2 or 1 cup chopped pecans

Filling
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick of butter, melted
1 16 oz. box powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 13x9 Pyrex pan.

Combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick of softened butter with a mixer or whisk. Mix well and then pat the mixture into the bottom of the greased pan. Sprinkle the pecans across the top of the crust.

Mix the the cream cheese until smooth with mixer, then add the eggs, vanilla, and butter and beat together. Then add the powdered sugar and mix very well. Pour the filling over the crust and bake for 40 or 50 minutes. Do not over bake; the center should be gooey.

Let cool and cut into bars.
