Butter Cookies

This recipe comes from my cousin, Amanda, who introduced these amazing cookies to me over the holidays at Grandmom's a few years ago. When she first told me what was in them, I was pretty skeptical of how well they would actually turn out. After all, only 5 ingredients are used. 

But, oh my. These cookies, quite literally melt in your mouth. As a lover of soft and gooey cookies, these definitely take the win for softest cookies ever. And they're a crowd pleaser; so if you have an event to go to, guests coming over, or just need to stock your own cookie jar, this is the cookie for you. Husband and I love them! I have a feeling you will too!

  • What You'll Need
    • 1 stick of butter
    • 1 package of cream cheese
    • 1 box of golden butter cake mix
    • 1 TSP vanilla
    • 1 egg
    • Powdered sugar

  • What You'll Do
    • Let the butter and cream cheese soften. If you're like me, you will put them in the microwave for a few seconds to help the process along.
    • Mix all ingredients together, stirring well until everything is combined. Cover the mixing bowl with saran wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least two hours. Sometimes I will make the dough the night before and bake them the next day. 
    • After they have been in the fridge for the required two hours, roll them into balls about the size of a tablespoon. Then roll them in powdered sugar. 
    • Place in the oven at 350° for 10 minutes.
    • Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with powdered sugar after pulling them out of the oven.
