Here it is, the recipe for Gold Bars. This is such a simple recipe, easy to whip up and not time-consuming at all. On the day you decide to make these be sure to take out the butter and cream cheese ahead of time for softening. Once you begin the recipe you’ll have them in the oven in less than 10 minutes. Perfection in every way!
I, personally like the edges and corners but to make a pretty presentation cut the edges off all around, eat them (only if you’re hungry), and then cut the rest into bars or squares.
They will melt in your mouth so take time to sit down, relax and enjoy every sweet, delectable bite.
Preheat oven to 300* Grease the bottom of 9×13 pyrex dish.
1 box Duncan Hines “Butter Golden Recipe” cake mix
1 stick butter (softened slightly)
Mix ingredients together until your mixture resembles coarse cornmeal and some lumps of butter remain. Press this mixture into the bottom of the pyrex dish. Set aside.
1 box powdered sugar (1 box of powdered sugar=16 oz. or two cups)
1 8 oz. box of cream cheese, softened ( I use low-fat)
Mix together and pour over crust.
Bake for 47 minutes, or until almost set in the center, they will finish baking and setting up after removed from the oven. Allow to cool before cutting. Cut into bars or squares.
