So...to go along with the pizza I wanted to make a dessert. Thought about brownies, but one of my friends isn't a huge chocolate fan. So, I decided to go with Easy Chess Squares. This is a recipe that came from my mom's recipe box. It really is quite easy and is delicious. I decided to add some lime zest to it for a little kick. I don't know how much of that you could taste, but I would recommend it. Everyone liked it and they guys left with little alumnium foil packets to take with them! Hopefully it supplied the glucose that their brains needed for studying!
Easy Chess Squares
1 box butter cake mix I used yellow because that's what I had!
1 stick margarine
Cut margarine into cake mix using pastry blender or two knives.
Pat mixture into a 13 X 9 pan.
Combine with mixer:
1 8 oz. softened cream cheese (I ALWAYS used 1/3 less fat, unless specified otherwise)
1 box confectioner's sugar
Add lime zest if you desire.
Spread on top of cake mixture. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. It should be a little browned on top but not solid in the center.
Allow to cool before serving. This would probably be good with different flavored cake mixes, although I've never tried others. I'll bet you could even add cocoa to the cream cheese mixture to make a choclate top if you wanted to. I, however, like the original with a little added zest! Enjoy!
