Death-by-Butter Cookies

I wasn’t crazy about these cookies just because they were not as sweet as I had hoped but my girlfriend and mom loved them. If you’re a sugar addict like me I would consider adding more sugar to the dough but if you’re looking for more of a biscuitty flavored cookie these are perfect.


1 box Duncan Hines butter recipe cake mix,
1 stick butter,
1/4 tsp vanilla extract,
1 pkg cream cheese @ room temperature (8 oz. pkg),
1 egg


Combine all ingredients with electric mixer until well blended.
Chill dough for two hours.
Roll into balls (about walnut size).
Roll balls in powdered sugar.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
Dust with powdered sugar when completely cooled.
These are also called: Gooey Butter Cookies
