One of my favorite foods that I found while in St. Louis is called Ooey Gooey Butter Cake/Cookies!
One of my teaching friends shared her recipe with me. Thanks Angie!
8 oz cream cheese softened
1/2 c. butter softened
1/4 tsp vanilla1 box yellow cake mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. Then, roll into balls and bake for 10 minutes, then with powdered sugar.
One of my students also shared his family recipe with me. They are fairly similar.
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/2 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 box yellow cake mix
Place cream cheese and butter in a bowl, and let them soften at room temperature for about 20 minutes. Then add the egg and vanilla, and mix with hand mixer. Then hand stir the cake mix into the batter (mix well). Take one teaspoon of mix and roll into ball, then roll into powder sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, and bake 8 – 12 minutes.
