Bayou Brownies

Oxmoor House
Prep time 10 mins
Bake time 40 mins
Yield Makes 15 brownies
Don't think chocolate when you try these brownies. Instead, think pecans and a sweet cream cheese topping. Yellow cake mix makes the recipe extra convenient for busy cooks to whip up in minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs, divided
  • 1 (18.25-oz.) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (16-oz.) package powdered sugar

How to Make It

  1. Combine pecans, butter, 1 egg, and cake mix, stirring until well blended; press in bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan.

  2. Beat remaining 2 eggs, cream cheese, and powdered sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour over cake mix layer.

  3. Bake at 325° for 40 minutes or until set. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares.
