Even though the city called off it's firework display due to rain and high winds, my family still grilled out and I made a yummy dessert! After all, it's STILL the 4th of July! Happy Birthday America! The original recipe for this cheescake calls for a box of Betty Crocker Cherry Chip cake mix and frosting. However, the store was OUT of that kind. So I bought Strawberry Cake mix and Strawberry Frosting. YUM! I think next time I make this, I'll try lemon cake and frosting!
1 box Betty Crocker Strawberry Cake mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) softened cream cheese
1 container B.C. Strawberry Frosting
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat dry cake mix and butter on low speed til crumbly; reserve 1 cup. Press remaining mixtue in bottom of 13 X 9 inch pan. In the same bowl, beat cream cheese and frosting on medium speed until smooth. Beat in eggs until blended. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumbly mixture. Bake about 45 minutes or until set. Cool completely. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. For bars, cut into squares. Store covered in the refrigerator.
