Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies

I got a hankering for butter cookies today.....not just any kind of butter cookies, but Gooey/delicious/amazing/mouth watering butter cookies. They are the best things that you could put in your mouth!!!!!
"Gooey Butter Cookies"
1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 yellow cake mix
1/2 c. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in egg and vanilla. Add cake mix & stir until well blended. Powder sugar your hands well. Roll balls into 1" or 2" and roll balls thoroughly in powdered sugar. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Leave on cookie sheet for 3 minutes or more before removing to cool on wire racks.
I NEVER, EVER have yellow cake mix on hand, so here is a recipe for it.
How to make Homemade Yellow Cake Mix:
(This is the standard size mix for recipes calling for an 18.25 ounce mix.)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup non-fat dry milk
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and non-fat dry milk. Store in an airtight container or baggie. Keeps well in the pantry for months!
Use only 2 and ¼ cups of the mix in for the cookies. Store the rest.
