Friend Janice knows that one thing she can't forget to make for their family Christmas gathering are her Cream Cheese Cookies. While I have personally not been fortunate enough to get to enjoy one, I am sure that they are everything and more than she proclaims.


1/4       cup butter, softened
1           package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1           egg
1/4       teaspoon vanilla
1           package yellow or devils food cake mix

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream the butter and cream cheese together til smooth. 

Blend in the egg and vanilla.

Add the dry cake mix, 1/3 at a time, mixing well after each addition. (If you are using a mixer, stir in the last 1/3 addition by hand.)

Cover and chill dough for 30 minutes.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown.

Cool slightly on cookie sheet before removing to finish cooling on wire rack.

When totally cool, ice with canned lemon frosting.

Thanks Janice for sharing your picture and the recipe with me. Next time, save me a cookie.
