If the word “butter” is in the title, you know it’s gonna be good!
1 tsp vanilla extract
Confectioner’s sugar, for dusting
1 – 18 oz box moist chocolate cake mix
1 – 8 oz brick cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
1 stick butter, room temperature


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg. Then beat in the vanilla extract. Beat in the cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls. Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then roll them in confectioner’s sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and gooey. Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
Just tried these for a family dinner today.   While I was not a big fan (too rich for me), the boys LOVED them!  Super fast and easy (except you have to allow time for chillin’ in the fridge).
