This famous St. Louis dessert starts with a vanilla butter cake base topped with a gooey cream cheese layer. You can hardly wait for them to cool completely before cutting them into pieces -but you HAVE to or they will fall apart! They smell so amazing right out of the oven…but they ARE worth the wait.
(Tip: for just the right amount of “gooey,” make sure to use a 9×9-inch pan and not an 8×8.)
1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 9×9-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
2 In a bowl, mix together the cake mix, melted butter and 1 egg until a soft dough forms. Press into the bottom of the baking dish.
3 In a stand mixer, combine together the cream cheese, 2 eggs, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread over the cake mix layer.
4 Bake bars for 45 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and the center has set to a soft consistency.
5 Cool COMPLETELY before slicing into bars and serving. (If not, it WILL fall apart!)
