I'm out of time today for a lengthy post....
Soft, slightly gooey, easy, and delicious. Appears to be a cake mix cookie, but so much better! Try them.
Gooey Butter Cookies
8 ounces cream cheese (1 package)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 18.5-ounce package yellow cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Add cake mix, and stir until well blended. Roll into 1" balls and then roll the balls in the powdered sugar. Place 1 inch apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
