Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies

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 egg
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 yellow cake mix
1/2 c. powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS:
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?

Do you add the ingredients to of the cake mix as well?

You just mix the powdered cake mix in with the other listed ingredients. Don't add any ingredients from the cake mix directions. :) Happy baking!

I love this recipe! Its quick, easy, and delicious! You can vary the cake mixes by using chocolate, spice, lemon, any flavor and for a fun twist I like combining 2 cake mixes (chocolate and coconut; orange and vanilla; strawberry and banana)! All you need to do is double the other ingrediants and wow! With all the different flavors of cake mixes, this recipe can go a long way!

Okay, I'm really confused, do you not add the powedered sugar into your cookie batter? Or do you just simply roll it in? So confused...
