Death-by-Butter Cookies

Flip it!


making my second batch of these!! If it was up to my family I would’ve made a second batch immediately after the first! We all loved them.What UI found was if I do exactly 10 minutes they come out like a gooey butter cake, if i let them stay just a few minutes longer like 4-5 they come out cakey,I love them both! Thank you for the recipe,definitely a keeper and so easy…I actually made them the second time without looking at the recipe,although i did double check to make sure i didn’t leave anything

I just took the first batch of these out of my oven and I’m TRYING to not eat the entire sheet of cookies! These are sweet, gooey, wonderfully colorful little bites. Will be making these for the Christmas tray, with red and green sprinkles. Delish

I made these this past weekend for my family’s annual cookie bake and man oh man were they YUMMY! They came out so soft and perfect. I will definitely make these again in the future.

I just made these cookies. They were easy to make and delicious to eat. Thank you. I will try your other recipes.

your blog is very hard to use unless on a computer. From my iPad and phone the ads kind of make it a nightmare and the content takes forever to load. We made these today despite the challenge and they were a big hit!

Totally making these this weekend for my hubby. He LOVES funfetti cakes, I know he’ll really love these cookies! Gonna be a fun surprise 🙂

Made these last night – exactly as written – but they were much more cakey than gooey. Any idea why that might be? Also had too cook them 15 minutes (first batch was nearly raw, but not gooey, with only 10). Flavor was good, but they were even better when I used a basic powdered sugar glaze + a tiny bit of almond extract drizzled over cookies when they were cooled. Definitely a very “Happy Birthday” recipe for cookie lovers.


1 box Duncan Hines butter recipe cake mix,
1 stick butter,
1/4 tsp vanilla extract,
1 pkg cream cheese @ room temperature (8 oz. pkg),
1 egg

Chill dough for two hours.
Roll into balls (about walnut size).
Roll balls in powdered sugar.
