Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, butter and egg and beat at low speed until crumbly. Add pecans and mix well. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 13 X 9 inch pan. Bake at 350°F for 5 minutes just until crust is set.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and egg until smooth. In a separate bowl, blend together cranberry sauce and nutmeg. Pour cream cheese mixture over crust. Spoon cranberry sauce in 3 rows lengthwise in pan.

    Run a knife through the cranberry sauce and cream cheese mixture to form swirls. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes, or until cream cheese mixture is set. Cool and cut into bars.
