  • 1/4 cup butter or stick margarine
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 package 18.5 ounce size cake mix


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Cream butter and cream cheese. Blend in egg and vanilla. Add cake mix, 1/3 at a time. Hint: put mixer on low for this phase so the cake mix doesn't blow all over. Mix well after each addition. Add milk slowly to avoid splattering.
  • Cover and chill 30 to 60 minutes. This is a key step. Drop by teaspoons (or tablespoons if you want larger cookies) onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until cookie bounces back when touched.
  • Cool 3 to 5 minutes before removing cookies to a cooling rack.


  • Ice with your favorite frosting.


  • Soften butter and cream cheese at room temperature for an hour prior to mixing up this recipe
  • Use any flavor of cake mix that you want.
  • Be creative adding nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, and other goodies!
