Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

This recipe comes courtesy of Paula Deen. It is so simple yet so delish!

1 (8oz) block cream cheese (room temp)
1 stick of butter (room temp)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (18oz) box chocolate cake mix
powdered sugar

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 vanilla and finally the cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours until the dough becomes firm enough to roll into balls. Roll the tablespoon sized balls into the powdered sugar. Place on a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake for 12-15 minutes (it depends on the size of the balls). The cookies will remain soft and gooey.
