Spiced Pecan Cream Cheese Cake Cookies-Annette's
Spice cake mix, cream cheese, butter, cinnamon chips and pecans! Does it get any better? And talk about easy to put together. This is another one of those throw together in a pinch recipes. It's also very versatile. You can use any kind of cake mix you want and either change up the mix-in's or leave them out completely. These are a play off the original "Gooey Butter Cookies" but I changed up the ingredients to fit what was in our pantry.
1 boxspice cake mix
1 stickbutter, room temp
1 pkg8 oz. cream cheese, room temp
1 ccinnamon chips (found in chocolate chip isle)
1 cpecans, chopped
