Blue Willow Squares

The special dishes of Blue Willow Inn, like so much of American cooking, are a combination of dishes made from scratch as well as canned or boxed goods in a mix-and-match fashion. Blue Willow Squares, a variation on what many home cooks know as Park Avenue Squares, start with an off-the-shelf cake mix, but become something totally different. This dreamy, moist square is yummy for the tummy.

Squares Recipe

The special dishes of Blue Willow Inn, like so much of American cooking, are a combination of dishes made from scratch as well as canned or boxed goods in a mix-and-match fashion. Blue Willow Squares, a variation on what many home cooks know as Park Avenue Squares, start with an off-the-shelf cake mix, but become something totally different. This dreamy, moist square is yummy for the tummy.

 

1 (18.25 – ounce) package yellow cake mix-and-match
½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup chopped pecans
2 plus 1 eggs
1 (8 – ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (16-ounce) box confectioners' sugar

 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine the cake mix, butter, pecans, and 1 egg by hand with a spoon. Mix well. Press the dough by hand into an ungreased 8 X 11-inch baking pan. (Use ice water to chill your hands for easier handling.) In a mixing bowl lightly beat the 2 remaining eggs. Add the softened cream cheese and beat well. Add the confectioners' sugar and blend. The mixture should be slightly lumpy. Spoon this over the cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 1 hour. Cut into squares for serving.

Yield: About 20 servings
