Gooey Butter Cookies

1 - 8oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/2 - cup butter, softened
1 - egg
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 - 10 oz yellow or butter cake mix
1/2 - cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in egg and vanilla. Add cake mix & stir until well blended. Powder sugar your hands well. Roll balls into 1" or 2" and roll balls thoroughly in powdered sugar. Place 1" apart on un greased cookie sheets press down cookie slightly. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes. Leave on cookie sheet for 3 minutes or more before removing to cool on wire racks.

* When baking these cookies you really need to keep and eye on them or you can burn them very easily. These cookies are done when they start to crack on top and are golden brown on the bottom. I have really good luck when I use parchment paper to bake all my cookies on.

Recipe yields: two dozen cookies
