Gooey Butter Cookies

I am not a huge cookie fan but these little things are a treat!  Super soft and delicious! Go ahead and make some….


  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar


  • Beat the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and egg with a mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Pour the cake mix into the butter mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until completely combined.
  • Put the powdered sugar into a small bowl by itself.
  • Use a spoon to grab a small amount of cookie dough and throw it into the powdered sugar. Now pull it out and roll into a ball.
  • Place cookie balls onto a cookie sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper.
  • Bake cookies for 12 minutes at 350!

These cookies are so good straight out of the oven!!!!
