Chess Squares

I have had this recipe for years, matter of fact, I’ve had it so long that I can’t remember where I got it from but I finally made it for my family and they loved it.  It’s so easy to make and if you make it once, you’ll get requests for it all the time.

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 egg

Top Layer:

  • 1 (8ounce) cream cheese
  • 2 eggs

  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Cut into squares when cool.
