Strawberry Gooey Butter Cookies

I snagged this one from my good friend Nikki. Her go-to recipe are these amazing melt-in-your-mouth perfect chewy little cookies, you can find the original recipe here. They are super easy to make and even easier to form an addiction on!

A few weeks ago, Nikki visited for a fun day of crafts, crazy toddlers, baking cookies, and dinner. We decided to alter her favorite recipe to take it to another level...needless to say, we were very satisfied with the results! Even better? We already have other plans in the making to see how many other ways we can play around with this charming cake-like confection ;)

Strawberry Gooey Butter Cookies

8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 C butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla
15.25 oz pkg strawberry cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Super Moist)
1/4 C confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

In a medium bowl, cream together cream cheese & butter. Mix in egg and vanilla. Add cake mix and stir until just combined.

Put confectioners' sugar in a small bowl. Roll the dough into 1" balls, then lightly coat in confectioners' sugar. Place 1" apart over an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 10-13 min. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

*Store in an air-tight container or in the freezer. No need to thaw!
