Bayou Brownies

My friend Devon hasn't let me down yet.  She's great when advice on cameras, running shoes, and confectionery treats.

These brownies (or are they blondies?) are no exception to the rule.  Holy crap they're amazing... and seriously rich... and seriously easy.  The ingredients are really common and most people have all of them in their pantry.  The other bonus.  Since they're SO rich you can cut them in smaller pieces and make the batch stretch farther (or eat the whole pan, go nuts).

Bayou Brownies:
(The Food Bitch Blog- from Southern Living)


1 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. butter, melted
3 large eggs
1 (18 1/4 ounce) package yellow cake mix
8 oz. whipped cream cheese
1 (16 ounce) package powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 325* & line a 9×13 pan with aluminum foil. Grease or spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together walnuts, butter, 1 egg & cake mix until smooth. Pour into pan & level with hands or a spatula.

In another large mixing bowl on medium speed, mix together remaining eggs, cream cheese & powdered sugar until smooth. Pour over walnut mixture. Bake for 40 minutes or until cream cheese layer settles. Let cool on a wire rack & cut into squares.
