Gooiest Butter Cookies

READY IN: 52mins
Recipe by JamesDeansGirl

Though I've never tried gooey butter cake, I've heard fabulous things about it! And if these are supposed to be a spin-off of its counterpart, it must be amazing! The blanket of powdered sugar cloaking these won me over! **Prep. time includes chill time.**

The cookies are delicious, but the dough really needs to sit in the refrigerator for about 2 hours to set, if not it is really sticky and you cannot roll. You can also put in the freezer until dough sets. Thanks for the recipe! :)
