  • Combine cream cheese and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add cake mix, egg, and vanilla extract and mix until batter is smooth.

  • Scoop out 1-inch balls of dough and set them on the prepared baking sheet, 1 1/2 inches apart.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until slightly golden brown on top, 13 to 15 minutes. Leave on the baking sheet for 1 to 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Dust with powdered sugar if you like. Store cookies in an airtight container. They will keep for 3 to 5 days.

Cook's Note:

If you like, you can chill the dough for 1 hour before scooping.

So easy to make. Very cakey-like with the cream cheese flavor as the star. I used a Duncan Hines Butter Recipe cake mix and wound up with 48 cookies using a small cookie scoop. They were not the most attractive looking cookies so on my second cookie sheet I flatten them down and sprinkled them with red sanding sugar. Next time I will bake an extra 2 minutes or so for a not-so-soft cookie. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
