Gooey Butter Cookies

It was another snow day today, no school... so time to make some cookies. I found this easy recipe online for Gooey Butter Cookies and the girls and I gave it a try. The girls had lots of fun rolling the dough into balls and coating them with powdered sugar. 12 minutes later... yummmmmmmmm, these cookies are sooooooooo good!

We took some cookies over to our neighbor and she called us right away saying how good they were and asked for the recipe.

Gooey Butter Cookies

Makes about 24

8 ounces cream cheese (1 package)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 18.5-ounce package yellow cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F (175 degrees C). 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.
