Gooey Butter Cookies

This recipe is from a librarian friend of mine. 

I've not made these cookies yet, but I may  just make them today!
I'm posting this because:
  1. I trust her; she says they're yummy!
  2. The recipe is easy!  You don't have to measure anything!
  3. These are easy, on-hand ingredients
  4. You can make these cookies cheaper than you can buy some from the store
With the Summer here, and kids home, and company coming, and vacations, this recipe should be an easy, go-to cookie with little effort and great results!
Speaking of vacation, if you pack a goodie basket to carry in the car with you, then you could bake up these treats and store them in a clean, but empty Pringles container as you travel!  Isn't that a novel idea?  They'll be keep safe, won't break, and when you're done, you can toss the can in the nearest trash bin!

If you really want to be creative, you can decorate the outside of the Pringles can with a decoupage road map, or contact paper, or scrapbook paper to make your can more impressive!

But onto the real reason we're here; the recipe!

Gooey Butter Cookies

1 stick butter, softened, but not melted
1 yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all of the ingredients together and roll into desired size ball and dredge through powdered sugar.  Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes until soft golden on the edges without over-baking them!

Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
