Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 package French Vanilla Cake Mix
1/3 cup unsalted butter or margarine
1 large egg
1 pkg. (8 ounces) cream cheese softened
1/4 cup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 jar (12 oz) apricot preserves


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease 13x9-inch pan. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, butter and egg; Mix only until crumbly. Gently spoon 1-1/2 cups of the crumbled mixture into a mixing cup; set aside for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture on the bottom of the greased pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a smaller mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg; beat until smooth. Set aside.

Spread preserves evenly over hot crust. Then spread cream cheese mixture evenly over preserves.

Sprinkle reserved topping mixture over cream cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for an additional 30 minutes or until topping is light golden brown. Cool to room temperature, then chill until serving. Store in refrigerator.
