I love making cookies using cakes mixes. It is very easy and convenient method. These delicious gooey butter cookies are made with yellow cake mix, cream cheese and butter for the most moist and gooey and chewy texture you will ever find.
This recipe is not in stone and can be easily changed up. I really like that part about it. Based on whatever cake mix you have on hand and decide to use, you can change the flavor up. You can also dress it up with candy and sprinkles for even more taste.
For this specific recipe, I use a yellow cake mix, and just sprinkle powdered sugar on top right when they come out of the oven. The powdered sugar melts and lightly caramelizes the the top of the cookie. They are slightly crispy on the outside and oh so gooey on the inside, and unbeatable texture combination.
The cookies are buttery and perfectly sweet and very easy to make as well. Beat butter, vanilla, egg and cream cheese until fluffy. Add the cake mix and mix until combined. Chill for 30 minutes then roll into balls and roll in a bowl of powdered sugar. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Once out, sprinkle more powdered sugar on top if desired.
