Neiman Marcus Bars

When two or three of my sisters get together, there's bound to be some talk about food.  We can't seem to help ourselves.  I think it's in the water, but if we consumed just water we would all be just a tad over in poundage.  But what the heck? right?  We love life and each other.  No complaining about having lots to love.

Want to know the reason there's lots to love? Neiman Marcus Bars are one.  I'm not posting a photo of the pan of bars we made. (Sid is the one who made them, but we are sharing credit since she used my stove).  The reason is that there is no photo.  They were so good, they didn't last long enough for a photo.

Sid's plan is to use the same recipe but to substitute chocolate cake mix for yellow.  I'll let you know how that turns out.  Don't expect anything negative, however, since we like chocolate.

I do have a recipe.  And since you were about to ask, I'll just post it here.  Enjoy!

Neiman Marcus Bars
1 box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick butter or margarine

1 block cream cheese
2 eggs
pound of powder sugar
1 tsp vanilla
handful of chopped pecans 

Mix in a bowl and spread in a 9 X 13 pan.  It's really thick, like play doh consistency, so plan to use your hands.

Mix the topping ingredients together and pour on top of the cake mix.  Spread to edges of pan.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.  Cool and cut into bars.
