Gooey Butter Cookies

I'm not a "no sugar" mom, but I do prefer to keep their treats as natural as I can.  We have a community candy drawer in the kitchen, where gift/holiday candy is rationed upon request. :)  Other than that, I prefer to keep the "desserts" as unprocessed as possible. Homemade means i know what's going into them....

Usually, when I prepare a dessert from scratch, I like to do it for real. My youngest requested these, though, so "all things in moderation" applies here. :)

Gooey butter cookies.

I used this recipe from Pinterest.

I mixed the butter, cream cheese, egg and vanilla.

Add the box of cake mix (this is the part I don't prefer.... Pre-packaged cake mix means I'm cheating on the "from scratch" part, but whatevs.)

Scoop by tablespoon and bake for 10-12 minutes.

The recipe says to roll the cookies in powdered sugar before baking, but I skipped this step and heard no complaints.
