My favorite cookies to eat around Christmas are Gooey Butter Cookies. I absolutely lurve them. Every year my aunt makes them and I usually eat almost the entire batch. :) This year I thought, why wait? I'll make 'em now.
Gooey Butter Cookies
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2)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 1inch balls and roll the balls in the confectioners' sugar. Place 1 inch apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. (next time I make these, I'm going to let the dough chill for a couple hours before putting it on the cookie sheet)
3)Bake for 10 to 13 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
