I also wanted to make a yummy treat for our guest - chess squares! I love chess squares! Growing up, my mom only made them around Christmas. So even though they really aren't a holiday dessert, I've always felt like I should only make them around Christmas (it's December now - crazy!).
So I'm following up yesterday's recipe post with a dessert recipe (you've got to have dessert, right!?!). These little goodies are SO easy and SO good.
First Layer Ingredients:
1 box butter cake mix
1 stick of butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp vanilla
Second Layer Ingredients:
1 (8oz) cream cheese, room temp
1 box (1 lb) conf. sugar
Mix second layer ingredients with mixer until smooth. Spread on top of dough mixture. Bake at 300 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until crust browns well.
Don't worry, Nicole; I'll bring you one. (She checks my blog every Thursday night to see if she's getting a treat the next day at work - hilarious!) For some odd reason, my co-workers expect goodies on Fridays.....go figure! :) I must admit that I was baking A LOT more pre-Beauford, but post-Beauford - not so much. I can't even image what having a child is going to be like one day if having a dog is this much work. (I love him though!)
