The other day we had planned to play canasta, but the weather had a different idea.  That was the day we ended up getting out first real snow for the season.....4 inches. It was beautiful and the roads were actually not that bad. But the group decided not to meet to be safe. 

Well, Janice decided she didn't want to not play canasta. So right after lunch, she called and invited us (my husband and me) to play that evening. It was a fun evening....meeting at Jason's Deli for dinner and then going over to their house for cards and these delicious cookies. (Janice and I also won which made it even more fun.


1/4      cup butter or margarine, softened
1          pkg (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

1/4      teaspoon vanilla

Frosting of your choice (Janice used canned lemon frosting)

Cream butter and cheese.

Blend in egg and vanilla.

Add dry cake mix, 1/3 at a time, mixing well after each addition. (If using a mixer,m add last third of cake mix by hand.)
