Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13 x 9 baking pan. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cake mix, egg and butter and mix well. Pat into the bottom of prepared pan and set aside.

Still using and electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add eggs and vanilla. Dump in confectioners sugar and beat well. Reduce speed of mixer and slowly pour butter. Mix well.

Pour filling onto cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Don't be afrain to make a judgement call on cooking time, because oven temps vary. You want the center to be a little gooey, so don't bake it past that point.

Remove from oven and allow to cooll completely. Cut into squares. Just remember that these are very, very rich and a little goes a long way.
