Since Nin asked for this

I give you the recipe for gooey butter cake, a Saint Louis exclusive dessert that is incredibly sweet and one of my favorites, especially when homemade, but store bought ones are pretty good as well, as they have the same recipe as the homemade ones. (They both use cream cheese. smaller pastry shops use something else, but the cream cheese version is easier to make.)

NOTE: You cannot substitute any of the ingredients for low fat versions of them because it will come out tasting wrong or very runny.

Gooey Butter Cake
Crust
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 eggs

Filling
8oz cream cheese
1 box powdered sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients for crust and put into a 13x9 greased & floured pan. Mix and spread filling over crust. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar. Bake 35-40 minutes.

DO NOT OVERBAKE
