Recipe Box Swap: Neiman Marcus Brownies

swap blogpost

This is the recipe that my mom uses for her Neiman Marcus Brownies, although I've no idea how "authentic" it is. They are absolutely fabulous though. Our local police department now requests them at Christmas!

Neiman Marcus Brownies


1 box butter pecan cake mix
1 stick butter melted
1 egg

Combine cake mix, melted butter and egg. Mix well. Press into pan 9x13.


1 lb box confectioners sugar
1 stick butter melted
8 oz cream cheese
2 eggs
chopped pecans

Combine confectioners sugar, melted butter, cream cheese and eggs for topping. Pour over cake mix. Cover with chopped pecans. Bake @ 300 for 55 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.

These sound great. I don't have a brownie recipe that doesn't have chocolate or butterscotch in them.

My Mom uses that same recipe but she calls it Neiman Marcus "cake"! We just say, "Ok, Mom!" and shake our heads.

Interesting side note? I went to Marcus High School, named for Stanley Marcus, one of the Marcus brothers of Neiman fame.

Well, certainly sounds like a good idea to keep the local police happy. I'm excited to try these; so far no from-scratch brownies have lived up to Duncan Hines' mix.

Also, I wonder if there are urban legends about this recipe like the NM cookie recipe?
