Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies

This is another one of those recipes that I thought was too sweet, but the hubby and the sister-in-law (who gave me this recipe) both loved them.  They also loved the Cake Batter Blondies from a couple of weeks if you liked those, then you'll love these!!

These cookies couldn't be easier to make.....since it uses a box of cake mix there aren't any dry ingredients to measure out......easy peasy lemon squeezy!!  Once the batter is together (it will be sticky!), you roll the balls in powdered sugar and bake.


1 8 oz. block of cream cheese
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
1 egg
1/2 t vanilla
1 box of yellow cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.  Cream the butter and cream cheese together until thoroughly combined.  Add the vanilla extract and egg and mix to combine.  Stir in the box of yellow cake mix and mix until incorporated.  
3.  Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop batter into balls and roll into the powdered sugar to coat.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes.

Thanks to my sister-in-law for the recipe.....Enjoy!!

  1. A yellow cake mix--I never expected to see it, Intersting and the cookies look so delicious. Does it matter what kind of cake mix?

  2. I don't think it would matter. I happened to have a yellow butter cake mix, so that's what I used.
