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 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!
