Sherry's Story

Oh my gosh, these are good and so easy. Use your imagination. I stumbled upon this recipe after realizing just how many cake mixes I had in my pantry. I love the flavor the cream cheese gives it. I'm a chocolate chip fiend, so I used a Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake mix and a small package of chocolate chips.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Deliciously sweet and buttery! We used a butter cake mix and added chocolate chips. This, along with the cream cheese, turned these cookies into the ultimate sweet treat. Seriously good!


1 box
cake mix, any flavor
8 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 c
butter, room temperature
large egg
1 tsp
vanilla (optional, depending on flavor)
1 c
any add-ins (flavored chips, candy, nuts, etc) amounts can be varied. for chocolate chip i added a 12 oz bag of semisweet chips

These tastes wonderful, however it took a few batches for me to get it right. The key is to take them out a little early. I took them out when I started to see the tops get a little brown. They may look slightly gooey, but with the cream cheese, they are supposed to be that way!

I used vanilla cake mix and added dark chocolate chips and craisins! So yummy!
