Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

I love, love, love these delicious one-bite cookies from Paula Deen. They are easy, insanely delicious and totally remind me of chocolate doughnut holes.  Which, is actually what I was craving when I decided to make these.

The batter is chilled for a bit, rolled into a ball and dipped in confectioner's sugar.  The result are these moist and chewy, pop-in-your mouth bites of deliciousness!  Dust with a sprinkling of confectioner's sugar before serving (if you want to be fancy).  

Makes 3 dozen cookies

Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

1 stick of butter, room temperature
1 bar (8 oz) cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 box (18 oz) moist chocolate cake mix
Confectioner's sugar, for coating and dusting

Preheat over to 350 degrees. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg, then the vanilla extract. Beat in the cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm until you can roll the batter into balls.

Scoop the chilled batter with a small cookie scoop, roll into a ball and then in confectioner's sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie shoot and bake for 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and gooey. Cool completely and dust with confectioner's sugar.
