You asked for it! I'm still just so excited. I won a rinky dink county fair with some cookies. I guess it doesn't take a lot to make me happy.
1 pkg cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 t. vanilla
1 pkg butter recipe cake mix
1/2 c. powdered sugar
Beat cream cheese and butter. Add egg and vanilla. Add cake mix. Chill dough for 30 minutes. Shape into balls and roll into powdered sugar and bake for 8-10 minutes on a prepared baking sheet in a 350 degree oven.
The key is NOT to overbake them. Don't let them brown. Let them rest on the pan for a few minutes until they're set up. Cool on a wire rack.
