It is the First Day of School here in my part of the world. To celebrate this big day I made cookies…Gooey Butter Cookies!
I love, love , love these cookies because you only need 6 ingredients and they are ready to gobble up in less than 45 minutes. Yep…6 ingredients and 45 minutes and you have a treat for the kiddos (young and not so young).
For this batch I used a Butter Yellow Cake Mix but you can use any cake mix you want. You could devils food, strawberry, or funfetti…so many options.
Roll them up
These cookies are not overly sweet, which I love in a cookie, but by rolling them in a little powder sugar it adds the perfect amount of sweetness. The dough will be pretty sticky so if you want it a little less messy you can freeze the dough for about 30 minutes to make it easier to roll.
You can also get the kids involved in this part as they can roll the dough in the powered sugar…it might get messy but it will be fun!
For some added options…after you roll them in the powdered sugar you could press in some chocolate chips, sprinkles or candy to make them a little more special.
When I use devils food cake mix I add in some mini chocolate chips for extra chocolatey goodness. Sprinkles are also super fun with the strawberry cake mix…they are just so pretty. My favorite though is just the plain version…I am a simple girl (well sometimes I am simple).
It is cookie time
