Ingredients

1
egg
1 box
yellow cake mix
1 stick
butter or margarine
1 c
nuts
1 box
powdered sugar
1 pkg
cream cheese, 8 ounces
2
eggs, first egg is for bottom layer

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
Melt butter. Mix butter, one egg, cake mix and nuts. I use walnuts or pecans. This will be the consistency of pastry. Press into a 9x13 inch greased pan.

Mix powdered sugar, two eggs and cream cheese. Pour over bottom layer and bake until lightly golden brown.

Do not over bake. Will be slightly loose while hot.

Bake 35-40 minutes.
