Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies
Adapted from: Paula Deen

8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 box red velvet cake mix
confectioners sugar, for dusting

1. In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the cream cheese and the butter. Beat in the egg, then the vanilla. Beat in the cake mix until completely combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
3. Roll the chilled dough into tablespoon sized balls. Roll in confectioners' sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.

These turned out great! Adam loves red velvet and was so excited about these...they were a hit! :) Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines Day with all the loves of your life! I will be spending my evening with chinese take-out and a movie night on the couch with Adam (and prob our snuggly dogs too)...a tradition we started our first valentines together!
