Gooey Butter Cookies
Michelle Otte submitted this simple cookie recipe for a Southeast Missouri favorite.
1 box yellow butter recipe cake mix
1 stick butter
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, regular or light
2 tsp. vanilla
Mix butter, cream cheese, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add cake mix, blend well. Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Drop balls of dough by an iced teaspoon into a bowl of powdered sugar and coat well. Bake on cookie sheet sprayed with a nonstick spray. Bake 12 to 13 minutes at 350 until golden brown. Makes about 4 dozen depending on the size of the cookies. My batch made about 4 1/2 dozen.
