“Granny Squares” or Easy Chessycake Bites


I got this recipe from a customer.  It is somewhat like a cheesecake in taste but way easier.  (Hmmmmm, there seems to be a them with the easy thing!  What can I say?  Work smarter not harder.)

I wanted to make this for our cover dish supper at the church tonight (ooops, last night, it’s 2:40am), but I didn’t have a yellow cake mix.  Sooooo, I used the German chocolate cake mix and it was just as good!!!  I didn’t get to take it to church because by the time decided what I wanted to fix and I found the ingredients in the garage (see post “Empty and Full”), there wasn’t time for it to bake.  Now I’ve got a lot of lemon lentil potato soup and Chocolate Granny Squares.  That will last a while (I hope.)

Preheat oven to 350˚.

Place 1 stick of butter in a 9 x 13 pan and put in oven to melt.

In a large bowl, mix with fork 1 box yellow cake mix (butter recipe) and 1 egg until totally combined.

In another large bowl, mix 8 oz. softened cream cheese, 1 tsp pure vanilla, 2 beaten eggs and 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar.

Pat cake mixture over melted butter.

Top with cream cheese mixture.

Bake 30 minutes or until golden on top.

Cool before cutting into squares.

(optional: top with coconut flakes)
