Ooey Gooey Chocolate Butter Cookies

I was over at my neighbors house on Friday. We were drinking delicious coffee and letting the kiddos play. It was lovely. She served me some delicious Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies that she made using a yellow cake mix. But, she said any kind of cake mix works. We were going to a friends house that night so I thought these would be a great treat to take along. Being the amazing neighbor she is she even gave me a few of the ingredients that I didn't have on hand so I wouldn't have to run to the store. These are super easy to make and yummy. Our kids especially loved these. 
Recipe: Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies

1 box cake mix (I used chocolate for these but am told you can use anything, my neighbor said pineapple cake mix is absolutely divine in these)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix all ingredients together
Roll into small balls and roll in powdered sugar
Place on baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes

I made mine a little bigger so my baking time ended up being about 13 minutes.
