Goodies Under Glass!

Wondering what to make for the Bake Sale?

 In my attempt to organize the countless recipes from the past and weeding out those which were "keepers" versus "throw aways", I came across this recipe from Dixie Doll Days. Sweet Melissa partipated in Dixie Dolls in High School back in Texas! Oh, the fun of those days....she was constantly popping around the house with music blaring from the bedroom as she practiced their weekly routines. We had countless Bake Sales and one of the best sellers was my Bayou Brownie Bites! So....I decided to whip up a batch and send some to work with Darling this week. He came back with an empty plate, so they must have been a hit! They are similar to Chess Bars and so very easy to make when you are craving something yummy!

A Maine House Mosaic

Bayou Brownies
Bottom Layer
1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
1 cup pecans
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
1 egg, beaten

Top Layer
8 ounces cream cheese
1 (16 ounce) box confectioners' sugar
2 eggs, beaten until fluffy

Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix the bottom ingredients together by hand. Press into a greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Mix the top ingredients with an electric mixer and pour over the first layer.Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.

Forget about the calories on this one....
they are worth an extra 30 minutes of walking!!
