Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Beat butter, cake mix and 1 egg in large bowl with mixer until crumbly. Reserve 3/4 cup crumb mixture; press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 10 min.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, granulated sugar and vanilla until blended. Add remaining egg; mix well.
Spread cream cheese mixture over crust; top with strawberries, then reserved crumb mixture.
Bake 45 min. or until center is set and crumb topping is lightly browned. Cool completely. Refrigerate 30 min. before cutting into bars.
Garnish with sifted powdered sugar just before serving.
Substitute raspberries or blueberries, or a combination of both, for the strawberries.
For Easy Removal From Pan
Line empty pan with parchment or foil, with ends of parchment extending over sides. Use to prepare dessert as directed. When ready to serve, use parchment handles to lift cooled dessert from pan.
