GOOEY BUTTER COOKIES!!!!!

Not my own creation, but VERY delicious!! ❤

Back at the leather shop while taking classes, one of the lovely ladies there, Lois, brought in these scrumptious treats.

Trying to find something to take to my (then) new job as a “thank you for hiring me” (I no longer work there…no fault of the cookies’!), I remembered her cookies and looked for a recipe.

I found one online…BUT I changed the baking instructions… to make bloody sense and be useful.

Gooey Butter Cookies
Makes about 24

8 ounces cream cheese (1 package)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 18.5-ounce package yellow cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter.
*DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MAKE A DOUBLE BATCH! MAKE TWO BATCHES INSTEAD! I almost killed my mixer lol*

Stir in the egg and vanilla. Add cake mix, and stir until well blended. It’s going to turn into a sticky mess – very thick!

Roll or spoon into loose balls about 1 inch around, and then roll the balls in the powdered sugar.
Place 1 inch apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet – I found it easy to press down on the balls alittle, they baked alot easier.

Bake for 10 to 13 minutes – I found 13 worked for my oven. I let the cookies cool on the tray while the oven got hot again (opening the door makes it loose heat!) When they are done, they will be yellow, with little cracks and valleys and soft to the touch. Don’t expect alot of browning. Do your first bake at 13 minutes – I’d rather overbake than underbake.

Once they’re out of the oven, dust with MORE powdered sugar!!! And enjoy, preferably with a nice cold glass of milk!!
