Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1 Lemon Cake Mix
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Soften cream cheese and butter. Mix cake mix, cream cheese, egg, and vanilla together until butter and cream cheese and butter are fully incorporated. Dough will be quite thick and sticky.
  • Scoop 1.5 tablespoons of dough (size of a medium cookie scoop) and roll into balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar and place onto lightly greased cookies.
  • Bake nine to ten until cookies are just puffed and cracked but still soft. Cool completely before glazing or serving.

Glaze

  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan, then turn off heat. Whisk in powdered sugar, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of milk (if piping on glaze) or 3 tablespoons (if dunking cookies to completely glaze the tops)
