Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

Although I’ve already made these before (a long time ago / before this blog), they are pretty damn good. So here they are.

Original Source: Paula Deen on the Food Network

1 (8-ounce) brick cream cheese, room temperature
1 stick butter, at room temperature
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (18-ounce) box moist chocolate cake mix
Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
Step 1
Step 1b

Beat in the egg.
Step 2

Then beat in the vanilla extract.
Step 3

Beat in the cake mix.
Step 4

Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls.
Step 5

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.
Step 6

Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioners’ sugar, if desired. The cookies will remain soft and “gooey.”
Step 7

Rather than post a video of Paula Deen, here is something I made while in my Digital Collaborative Tools at JWU:
