Gooey Butter Cookies

This is the cookie version of Gooey Butter Cake. Make these for your next social event and you'll impress all your friends and family. Gee, just make them now and impress yourself!

Recipe is from my sister-in-law, Sue.

1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 (8-oz.) package softened cream cheese
1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 c. powdered sugar

Beat butter, vanilla, egg, and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in cake mix. Chill 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly coat cookie sheets with spray. Drop dough by the teaspoonfuls into the powdered sugar. (Don't use cookie scoops, teaspoon is big enough.) Roll into balls. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 4 dozen.

Thank you Maureen! My cookin' dh used a half box of yellow cake mix to make a cobbler and I have been looking for a way to use the rest, to no avail! I will try your recipe today. Yumm!
