Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter N

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Neiman-Marcus Cake! Repeat after me, “Butter is my friend. Butter is my new best friend.” One bite of these sweet cream butter bars and you’ll swear they came from a French bakery. Look no further than the Neufchâtel cheese filling for confirmation. I always serve this cake with fresh fruit for the ultimate pâtisserie experience. 
NEIMAN MARCUS CAKE

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 lb. powdered sugar

8 oz. bar of Neufchâtel cheese

3/4 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 325°. Stir cake mix, melted butter, and one egg. Press into the bottom of a greased and floured 9 x 13 glass dish. Mix powdered sugar, 2 eggs, almond extract, and softened Neufchâtel cheese until smooth. Pour over top of cake mix. Sprinkle sliced almonds on top. Bake 50-60 minutes. Cool. Cut into squares and serve with fresh strawberries.

  1. First your photographs fill our sight, stimulate our taste buds, and appeal to our sense of smell. Then your easy to follow recipes tell us how to create the delicacy pictured. I will be making this one. I agree with you and your readers about the wonders of butter; and when I decide to use it, I throw guilt out the window and give in to enjoyment, which I try not to do on a daily basis!
