Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

This cookie recipe comes from my mom and it's my favorite. I don't like a lot of cookies, but I love these. I will warn you now...they are no where near healthy :)

1 milk chocolate Betty Crocker cake mix
1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese (room temp)
1 cube butter (room temp)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees
Combine cream cheese & butter.
Then add the remaining ingredients- cake mix, egg & vanilla.
Spoon dollops of cake mix on a greased cookie sheet, don't form balls, these are supposed to be kinda chunky and medium to big sized.
Bake for 8-10 mins, these are quite moist so be sure not to overbake them. Bake one sheet and let them cool enough to taste then adjust time from there.

My mom is also known for her cherry chip version of these cookies. Just replace the chocolate cake mix with Betty Crocker Cherry Chip cake mix. My brothers love them.

With my mom half a world away these make her feel a little closer.

I ALWAYS think of your mom when I make these. Steven hates them but they are by far my favorite cookie...ever. So, needless to say I get to eat the whole batch! Yumm-o!
