Butter Cookies

Ok, so for those of you that are following me that are health and fitness nuts, just skip on past this recipe :)
Very yummy cookies.  I will let the recipe speak for itself....enjoy
P.S. Once you try these, you might want to consider doubling it

1 8 oz brick of cream cheese, room temperature
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 box moist chocolate cake
Confectioner's sugar for rolling and dusting

Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth.  Beat in the egg.  Then beat in the vanilla extract.  Beat in the cake mix.  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls.  Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon size balls and the roll them in powdered confectioner's sugar.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.  Bake 12 minutes.  The cookies will remain soft and "gooey".  Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioner's sugar, if desired
