    I'm cookin', good lookin!'s Note:

    This is based on a Paula Deen recipe, so it's quite rich ;) This is by far the most luxurious cookie I make. They never last long. They're painfully easy to make, which may be bad news for your waistline.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 5-7



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
    2. 2
      Beat in the egg.
    3. 3
      Beat in the vanilla extract.
    4. 4
      Beat in the cake mix.
    5. 5
      Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls.I've chilled batter overnight and it comes out fine.
    6. 6
      After batter has chilled and you're ready to make the cookies, preheat the oven to 350°F.
    7. 7
      Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then roll them in confectioner's sugar.
    8. 8
      Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
    9. 9
      Bake 12 minutes. The cookies should remain soft and gooey.
    10. 10
      Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioners' sugar, if desired.
    11. 11
      To make these devilishly rich, I also top the cookies with cream cheese frosting, which is simple to make. I use Bev's Cream Cheese Frosting (Cream Cheese Frosting), but double the vanilla. Or, if I'm making them for people I know have more of a savory tooth than sweet, I'll triple it to a full tablespoon.

      Great taste. A little messy to roll. Put spray on your hands or use plastic gloves. I stuck in a Hershey kiss after they came out of the oven. My friend was going to put cream cheese frosting on them insteadnof the powdered sugar

      I baked these for my classmates and they LOVED it! My one classmate said it makes you "want to lick it off your hand". I didn't refrigerate it as long as it was directed and I was in a hurry so they separated easily but my classmates didn't have a problem with it. I also added 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips and it paired well.

      I just made this last week and oh boy were they a hit! They came out great. Reviews i got from people: decadent, luscious, even SEXY! I added chocolate chips (half a bag) to the dough, it gave a little something extra. I'm new to the baking world so i didn't have a cookie sheet, so i just used my cupcake tins... which actually were perfect! b/c then all the cookies were the SAME size. I was able to make perfect sandwiches using a cream cheese frosting :)
