Gooey Butter Cookies

  • 1 (8oz) package of cream cheese

  • ½ cup of butter, softened

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ t vanilla extract

  • 1 package of yellow cake mix

  • powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together cream cheese and butter. Stir in the egg and vanilla (I use the stir speed on my mixer). Add cake mix and stir well until blended. Roll the dough into 1- inch balls. If the dough is difficult to roll, you can refrigerate it for a few minutes first. Roll the dough balls in powdered sugar. Place them 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. The tops should be very slightly browned.
