Christmas Gooey Butter Cookies


Christmas Gooey Butter Cookies


½ c. unsalted butter, room temperature
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
½ tsp. almond extract, opt.
½ tsp. orange extract, opt.
1 pkg. white cake mix
½ c. sprinkles, divided
½ c. powdered sugar


In a medium bowl, cream together butter & cream cheese. Add the egg, almond extract & orange extract & mix until combined. Add the white cake mix & mix until combined. Stir in ¼ cup of sprinkles. Cover bowl with plastic wrap & refrigerate for at least one hour or up to 24 hours. The longer the dough chills, the less sticky it will be.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place powdered sugar in one bowl & the remaining ¼ cup of sprinkles in another bowl. Using a 1-inch cookie scoop, scoop out dough & roll into a ball. Sprinkle with a few extra sprinkles & roll in powdered sugar, completely covering the dough ball. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for two minutes before removing to wire rack. Makes approximately 42 small cookies.
