Food Fixing Friday


I'm joining Kelly at Two kids a minivan and a lot of love once again for Food Fixing Friday. I'm shocked that more people haven't gone to her blog and joined in because I absolutely love to discover new recipes so I know I can't be the only one. So sit down and share your favorite recipe(after you read mine of course)and then head over and link up so we can all come see and try it out for ourselves. This week is cookie recipes. I am a huge dessert fanatic so this is extra exciting for me!!! I can think of tons and tons of cookie recipes to share but I'm going to share one I discovered over the holidays last year and it has quickly become a favorite. This is a Paula Deen recipe and I believe I saw it on one of her shows...it is a relative of the gooey butter cakes :) yum yum yum!

This is Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies-I will warn you they are addicting and melt in your mouth when they are warm straight out of the oven! Beware: you will not be able to eat just one or two for that matter!

1(8 oz) package cream cheese,room temperature
1 stick butter,room temperature
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 (18 oz) box moist chocolate cake mix
Powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg..after well blended beat in the vanilla. Beat in the cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for two hours until firm so that you can roll the batter into balls. Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then roll in the powdered sugar. Place on a cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and gooey!!!! Yummy!

I am going to have to make these this weekend. I have had a chocolate craving lately, which isn't normal for me.
I agree with you, I love new recipes and wish more people would join in.

Oh these do sound delish! Anything Paula Deen is guaranteed to include gooey... gooey thighs, gooey stomach :) But who can pass up a sweet treat?

I don't need another ounce of fat added to my body, but I must say these look delicious. Honestly, can a person go wrong when a recipe calls for cream cheese?

Liz said...

okay....those look so good...but are not helpful for the diet starting after a baby! :)

I actually haven't called her a him yet...I call her buddy...which is pretty close, but not him ....YET...i'm sure it's coming..thanks for all of your sweet and kind comments...so glad to know someone in my same "situation"...will be asking for tips soon! It's funny in the hospital they assume you know "everything about babies since this is your fifth"...and I finally had to say...I know I have all the same ummmm "parts", but I have no idea what I am doing when I change her diaper....they thought it was funny they had to show me...it's so fun and we are all so in love with her!
