Recipe: Pound Cake Squares

My friend Holly passed along this recipe - and I've included her notes. I made these this weekend for a meeting - and they were a BIG hit!

Pound Cake Squares

1 box pound cake mix (Betty Crocker)
4 eggs
1 stick butter, softened
1 box powdered sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

1. Combine cake mix, butter & 2 eggs. Spread in greased and floured 13x9x2" pan

2. Combined powdered sugar (same some to sprinkle on top), cream cheese, 2 eggs, and vanilla. Pour over top of cake mixture. Sprinkle nuts on top.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. While still warm, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

NOTES: "They are incredible fresh from the oven; the melt in your mouth like a hot Krispy Kreme doughnut."
