Red Velvet Chess Squares

When I called my niece, Marcie, recently to talk about her Strawberry Shortcake, she asked me if I had heard about Red Velvet Chess Squares.  I told her that I had not and asked where she got the recipe.  She said that it was in our Wiregrass Electric Co-op magazine.  She said that it was fabulous!  Well, I found under my stack of magazines the most recent Wiregrass Electric 
Co-op magazine and upon reading the Red Velvet Chess Squares recipe decided that I had to get to the store to pick-up a Red Velvet Cake mix.  I love easy, tasty recipes and this one fits that description.  

I had to reassure Phillip that this would not take the place of a traditional Red Velvet Cake! 

                                                     Red Velvet Chess Squares

1 box red velvet cake mix                                       
1 stick margarine, melted                                       
4 eggs, divided                                                               
1 - 8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, room temperature
1 box powdered sugar


Combine cake mix, margarine, and 1 egg.  Mixture will be the consistency of cookie dough.  Press into the bottom of a 9 X 13 inch baking pan or dish that has already been sprayed with Pam Spray.  Cream powdered sugar, cream cheese, and remaining 3 eggs.  Pour over crust and bake at 325 degrees for 40 - 45 min.  Cool completely and cut into squares.
