Gooey Butter Cookies!

1/4 tsp. Vanilla
1 egg
1 8oz package of cream cheese softened
1 stick of butter softened
1 yellow cake mix
Powdered sugar for coating

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter, vanilla, egg and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Mix in dry cake mix. Cover and chill 30 minutes.

Lightly coat cookie sheet with cooking spray. Drop dough by the teaspoon-fulls into bowl of powdered sugar and roll them to cover completely. Place the dough balls onto cookie sheets about 2 inches apart and bake for 12 minutes or until a light golden brown. Makes aprx 4 dozen cookies.

Variation: Substitute the yellow cake mix with a devils food cake mix. Both versions are really yummy!!!

I got the recipe from my good friend Tami! She made them for us last summer and we loooooved them! If you cook them longer than 12-13 minutes they will be more cake like cookies rather than soft and chewy. Both are good though! Enjoy! Let me know if you like them!
