Gooey Butter Bars/Neiman Marcus Bars/ Texas Gold Bars etc.

This is one of those recipes I have had for years and many of you probably have it too. In Texas, we referred to these bars at Neiman Marcus bars or Texas Gold Bars but in the midwest, they are typically referred to as Gooey Butter Bars. The original Gooey Butter Cake is from St. Louis. Please visit Park Avenue Coffee in St. Louis as they have 73 varieties of Gooey Butter Cake - and they ship! :) I had to post this recipe - all time, stand-by yummy recipe. I plan to make Peanut butter/Chocolate Gooey butters bars next!

Gooey Butter Bars

Mix the following and pour into a greased 9 x 13.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, softened
2 eggs

Mix the following and pour on top of the above cake mixture.

1 box powdered sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 eggs

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Top will get lightly brown, cake edge will rise up around edge - just make sure center isn't "too GOOEY".

how many oz/lbs are in a box of powdered sugar?

Maricela Ortiz said...

Do you just put in the boxed cake mixture along with the butter or do the instructions for the cake then add the butter mixture and the 2 eggs??

Heather Garrenton said...

In reply to Maricela Ortiz~ you just put the cake mix in as is from the box, you do not prepare a cake batter first. So just mix the powdered cake mix along with the butter and eggs and you'll be good to go!
To Jennifer and Enoch Jones~ a box of sugar typically comes in 16 oz box packaging!
