Paula Deen. Cream Cheese. Yup, that’s all you need to know! These are the BEST chocolate cookies I have ever had. 6 ingredients and done. So rich and yummy. Enjoy!
-1 (8 oz) brick cream cheese, room temperature
-1 stick butter, room temperature
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 (18 oz) box moist chocolate cake mix
-Confectioners sugar, for dusting
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg. Then beat in the vanilla extract. Beat in the cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls.
3. Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then roll them in confectioners sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and “gooey.” Cool completely.
