Butter me Up Baby

I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but I can't.  I absolutely LOVE butter, and it makes my heart happy that someone has created a recipe with Butter as the main ingredient.  I was cruising around blogs today and found "Butter me up Baby" on Extreme Personal Measures.  It looked so incredible I just had to try it!  I can say that it really is as incredible as it sounds and looks!  So here is the recipe, and for all of you butter lovers out there I hope you try it and let me know what you think.  I hope you'll love it as much as I do!

1 18 1/4-ounce package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 16-ounce box powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer.  Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.  Prepare Filling. (I put pastry paper in my pan before patting the mixture in.)
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.  Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter and beat together. 
Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well.  Spread over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.  Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.   YUM!!
