I have been making these bar for years. I do not know where this recipe originates from I found it online, and I love it!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Crust: 1 (15.25 oz. ) box butter cake mix, 1 stick unsalted butter, melted, 1 egg, 1 cup finely chopped pecans. In a bowl dump cake mix, butter, egg, and pecans, mix well. Pour this mixture into a 13 x 9 inches casserole dish. With your hand press down to the bottom of the pan. Filling: 2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, 3 eggs, 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
