you should really give these cookies a try. rrreally.
at our house, they are known as "theG" (for grant) delights.
he really likes them. and i do, too. and you will, too.

you'll need...
1 stick butter
1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 chocolate cake mix
powdered sugar for rolling

1. blend butter and cream cheese together
2. add the egg, vanilla, and cake mix
3. chill for 30 minutes
4. roll balls the size of a 50-cent piece in powdered sugar (i forgot this step, but they are still fine, don't worry.)
5. bake at 350 for 12 minutes (commit to this precise time. don't give in to the pressure of over-baking. don't do it. you'll be so happy that you didn't.)
*yields 3 dozen cookies. enjoy.

YUMMMO! What was the original name?

Summer said...

the original name was gooey butter cookies.
I don't care for the term "gooey"- that sounds pudding or something. Also, although they are buttery, "butter cookies" doesn't make you think of chocolate at all!

These look SO good. That close up of the dough on the spoon is killing me. I'm lucky if I ever bake my cookies, so great is my love of the raw dough!
