This very sweet dessert is a Southern classic. It's similar to chess pie, but much easier to make.
It's has a gooey filling.
Sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top to make them pretty.
Bake in a 9x13 pan,
until golden and slightly puffed.
Let cool and cut into squares. Refrigerate leftovers.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, melted
Melt the butter in a large bowl in the microwave for 45 seconds. Add the cake mix and the egg and beat with a mixer until well blended. It will be a soft dough. Pat it into the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
8-oz package cream cheese, softened
1t lemon extract or 1-2T lemon juice
1 lb box confectioners sugar
Beat the eggs with the cream cheese until blended. Mix in the lemon, then the sugar. Beat until smooth and pour over the crust. Bake @350 for 35-40 minutes.
