by Kara Kimbrough


1 box yellow cake mix

1 cup pecans, chopped and lightly toasted

1 stick of butter, melted

3 eggs 

1 (8-ounce) bar cream cheese, softened

Pound of confectioner’s sugar


Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 13-by-9-inch pan with foil, crisscross fashion, and allow long ends to hang over sides. Lightly spray foil with Bake Easy or other flour-based cooking spray. 


In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pecans, butter and one of the eggs until well blended. Press mixture in bottom of pan.


In another bowl, beat remaining two eggs, cream cheese and confectioner’s sugar with mixer on medium speed until smooth. Pour over cake mix base.


Bake 40 minutes or until firm. Cool completely on cooling rack. Remove by pulling up foil edges and cut into squares.
