Caramel Cheesy Cookies

1 box devil’s food cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3 eggs (divided use)
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9x13-inch glass or metal pan; set aside.

In a bowl, mix the cake mix, butter and 1 egg by hand. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
