Yummy!! These are great cookies. I used a Red Velvet cake mix for a Christmas cookie exchange and they look so cute. I also added extra powdered sugar on top. Can't wait to make these again. Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Allow butter and cream cheese to soften and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix cake mix ( you can really use any kind, I have used butter and chocolate) with the butter, cream cheese and egg.
  3. After the ingredients are all mixed together, put in refridgerator over night or for at least 4 hours.
  4. Roll into balls (about the size of a cherry or slightly larger) and roll in powdered sugar.
  5. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  6. I sometimes sprinkle a little extra powdered sugar on top after they come out of the oven, but this is not neccesary.
