Sharing Recipes

I wanted to share some recipes that I am asked to make at family get togethers and cookouts.  This past weekend we visited Jimmy's sister and her family for her youngest son Josh's 21st birthday.  Her two boys love Chess Bars so that is one thing I usually make.  I have seen several variations for Chess Bars but this is how I make them---
Ingredients for crust or first layer:
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 stick of butter, melted
1 egg
Mix these 3 ingredients together well and press evenly into 9x13 dish  
Ingredients for top layer:
1 lb or box of powdered sugar
1 8oz. bar of cream cheese
2 eggs
Mix these ingredients together and pour over first layer
Bake @ 350' for 45 minutes until golden brown on top and sides
Tomorrow I plan to share Sour Cream Potatoes--another family favorite:)

This is very similar to lemon bars that I make, you just use lemon cake mix and add lemon extract to the icing, and a little powdered sugar to top it off with.
