Here they are! Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day – Pistachio Chess Squares. I was a little unsure of my latest creation when I removed them from the oven last night. But the kids barely left enough to photograph. I was lucky to claim these last two for the camera so I could post and share with you.
- 1 box butter recipe yellow cake mix
- 1 egg
- 1 stick real butter softened
- 1 package cream cheese, softened
- 1 box instant Jello Pistachio Pudding
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 stick butter softened
- 1 box powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon almond flavor
Preheat oven to 350 degrees,
Combine cake mix, egg and butter, mix well with electric mixer. Press mixture into a lightly greased 13×9 pan.
In a large bowl, cream the cheese and butter together with a mixer until smooth and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat after each addition. Add vanilla and almond flavor and beat well. Next add powdered sugar and the Jello Pistachio pudding. Mix well. Spread cream cheese mixture over crust mixture. Bake 30-35 minutes. Center should not be overcooked and remain a little gooey.
