Who doesn't love an ooey gooey cookie that just melts in your mouth? Priscilla over at Priscilla's Baking Adventures posted an amazing receipe for "Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies" that I am dying to try and thought I'd share with you in case you felt compelled as well.
"Gooey Butter Cookies"
1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 yellow cake mix
1/2 c. powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in egg and vanilla. Add cake mix & stir until well blended. Powder sugar your hands well. Roll balls into 1" or 2" and roll balls thoroughly in powdered sugar. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Leave on cookie sheet for 3 minutes or more before removing to cool on wire rakcs.
And just as proof, don't these look amazing!??!

I'm thinking these would make some amazing cookies for Operation Baking Gals, Round 5. What do you think? Would you make these lovely gems and send them to those fighting for our freedom?
