Butter Cookies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by happynana

I got this recipe from a friend that I work with a couple of years ago. This is one of my DH favorite recipes. Overnight refrigeration not included in time. I am guessing on the amount of cookies because it would depend on the size that you make them.

These are an adorable cookie that goes together so fast and is so so yummy and gooey. Reminds me of Paula Deen's ooey gooey cakes and cookies she makes using almost the same ingredients. This wouldn't be for those watching the calories or fat intake. :-) A great recipe to give or bring anywhere this time of year too. I feel this could be very versatile with any type of cake mix used.
