Doesn't the name of this cookie make you want to try one? Once you see how easy they are to make you will definitely want to bake a batch or two for yourself!
Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies
*1-8 ounce brick of cream cheese, softened
*1 stick of butter at room temperature
*1-18 ounce box of chocolate cake mix
Preheat over to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, cream the cheese and butter, beat in egg, then vanilla. Add cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up.
Roll into tablespoon sized balls. Roll in powdered sugar. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes. Cookies will remain gooey. Dust with more powered sugar.
I love the way they crackle when baked. They have a rich, creamy flavor and they are so soft, moist and gooey.
I think I would like to try this using a red velvet cake mix. Pretty sure that would be wonderful too. You could probably even add a little peppermint extract as well for a completely different flavored cookie. Easy and delicious, don't you think!
I am joining all the other girls at How Sweet the Sound for a very special recipe edition of Pink Saturday. Go bake up some of these yummy Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies, have a glass of milk, and see what everyone else is baking up!
