Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

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 egg
*1tsp vanilla
*1-18 ounce box of chocolate cake mix
*Powered sugar
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!
