Gooey Butter Cookies
- 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 2 large egg yolks
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- 1-½ packages (12.5 ounces per package) yellow cake mix
- ½ to ¾ cup confectioners' sugar, for rolling
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine together cream cheese, butter and egg yolks over medium speed until creamy and smooth. Add vanilla and almond extract, beating well after the addition. Adjust speed to low and gradually beat in yellow cake mix until just combined.
- Shape batter into balls or scoop out with a mini-ice cream scoop. Drop over confectioners’ sugar and roll until coated. Tap out any excess sugar.
- Arrange balls on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper, allowing a gap of 2 to 3 inches between each piece. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and centers are still chewy.
- Allow to cool on cookie sheets for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
- You may also experiment with other cake mix flavors like chocolate and butter, however, the best substitute would be lemon cake mix.
