Tasty Tuesday-Gooey Butter Cookies

Okay, okay, it's actually Wednesday and I'm a day late but regardless here is your weekly recipe as promised! I've made these cookies for co-workers on numerous occasions and there are never any left to bring home. This is probably a good thing because once you start eating them it's hard to stop and with an endless supply I'd be about 50 pounds heavier right now!

What you'll need:

1 8oz. package of cream cheese

1 egg

1/2 cup of butter (softened)

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 package of yellow cake mix (chocolate cake mix is delicious too!)

1/4 cup confectioner's sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and butter and stir well. Add in the egg and vanilla extract, then stir in cake mix until well blended. Form the mixture into little balls and roll in confectioner's sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for approximately 10 minutes or until done.
