      We just call these Evil Cookies! I've found I like them better when they cook just a bit longer. I make them larger too. And really, they just ain't right. They ain't right at all. Nothing should be this delicious. My friend says they call to him "Eat me. Eat me" They call to me "Make me. Make me." Don't be surprised if the church down the block starts a Gooey Butter Cookies Anonymous group to support us slaves. Just for today, I'm not going to eat any Butter Cookies... Oh shoot. I just had two for dinner! OK. Maybe tomorrow I won't have any Butter Cookies...

      I have been making this recipe for years now. I normally use a golden butter cake mix or red velvet. They are not bad with a spice mix either. A cookie scoop is a great investment for this recipe. Since I make them alone I usually make the balls with the scoop, return to fridge, and just before ready to bake roll them in the powdered sugar.

      I have been making these for years. We love them. I tend to cook them close to the 13 minute mark. If not, they get mushy quickly. They are a cookie that is softer than the normal cookie. Yummy!
