1 large egg
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (16 oz.) box confectioners sugar

Beat cream cheese at medium speed with electric mixer until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Gradually beat in confectioners sugar until smooth. Add remaining melted butter. Stir in coconut and pecans. Pour over cake layer, spreading evenly. Bake 45 minutes (the center should remain slightly gooey). Remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting in squares.
