Everyone loves Red Velvet cake (well, a lot of people do at least). I found this recipe for gooey butter cookies through Food Network and Paula Deen. Her original recipe uses a box of chocolate cake but since it's a box of cake I decided to go with red velvet.
Red Velvet Cookies:
8oz. (1 brick) cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (18-ounce) box red velvet cake mix
Powdered sugar to roll the cookies in.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in egg, then the vanilla. Beat in the cake mix.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up. Roll batter into tablespoon-sized balls and then roll them in powdered sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and "gooey."
