Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cookies

To celebrate Karen G's Labor Day BBQ.  Not only am I participating, but I thought that I should share the recipe to my famous Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cookies that I am bringing to the BBQ.

Trust me you will love them!

And while your here, you can check out my blog, or go visit some of my fellow campaigners blogs!  I'll finally be catching up and visiting everyone's blogs this weekend.  Oh and I'm also going to have lunch with the FABULOUS GP Ching

So have a great holiday weekend and maybe make some cookies for yourself :)

*1 stick butter
*1/4 tsp vanilla
*1 egg
*1 eight oz cream cheese
*1 box butter cake mix
*powdered sugar
*1 bag chocolate chips

-Beat vanilla, eg, cream cheese, and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Mix in dry cake mix and chocolate chips, then chill in fridge for atleast thirty minutes.

-Roll into balls (about golf ball size or a little smaller, I usually place them on a sheet and make all of the balls first) and then drop into powdered sugar before placing on greased cookie sheet.

-Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Will make about 30-50 cookies.

Now I really want to eat some, droooollllll


  1. These cookies look yummy! I just made cookies a couple days ago but you're making me want to make them again.

  2. Oh yum. I came here from the BBQ, but I'm so full I think I have to just lay here for a minnit to catch my breath. :)

  3. Hi Magan! I found you through Karen's BBQ, too. Those cookies look delicious! I love YA too, though I'm currently working on an upper MG novel.

    Love your blog!

  4. OMG, those cookies seem like they are to die for. Found you from Karen's BBQ - nice to meet you.

  5. I am drooling here.. Love those cookies!! Thanks for that, Magan!

    Nice to "meet" you from Karen's BBQ!

  6. Just the name of the recipe is enough to make me gain 5 lbs. Will copy and save! And thanks for the shout-out about the BBQ! It would be so fun if everyone posted their recipes and then we could put together an annual recipe book. Cuz I don't have enough to do, but I love the idea! Maybe next year...

  7. sounds delicious!
    i can't bake, but ate cookie dough raw once when i came home a little tipsy! lol
    ur my sixth stop on karen's long weekend bbq! great blog--following!

  8. Hi Magan,
    Coming over from Karen's BBQ party and what do I see: cookies! I could do with one (or 10 for that matter) right now! YUM!

  9. Coming over from Karen's BBQ party. Wow, wish I wasn't a vegan!

  10. Hi. Nice to meet ya here at Karen's shindig. Those cookies sound good . . . and a bit easier than the batch now dwindling on our kitchen table. Will definitely have to give 'em a try.

  11. Nice to meet you Magan. Great Grill party Karen is having and it is so much fun to hop around and meet new people. I would love to try your cookies but I am afraid some of the ingredients are a bit hard to get here in Norway. A very boring problem that I have had to deal with for some 20 odd years since moving here. You have a lovely blog and I hope you come and visit me soon too. Have a great week-end!

  12. Yum yum yum! I'm drooling here, too.

    Lovely to meet you!

  13. Hi Magan! I've come from KarenG's BBQ! How delish those cookies look! I wanted to come visit your blog and meet you and say hello! What a wonderful blog..I will be back to visit I'm sure!

  14. Oh those look so good! Definitely have to make them.

    I'm from the BBQ, too. Nice to meet you!

  15. Yum; thanks for sharing the recipe! I'm also stopping by from the BBQ! You are so kind to share ;D

  16. Oh, it's too early for chocolate chip cookies.

    *bangs head with palm of hand*

    What am I saying? It's never too early for chocolate cookies!

  17. Oh yum! Those look delicious! New follower here from the BBQ! Nice to 'meet' you! Hope you have a great labor day!

  18. Oh my god, those look fantastic!! I'm a fellow campaigner, dropping by to say hello. Glad I did it on cookie day!!

  19. I seriously hate you right now. I AM ON A DIET. I can drool, though. Drooooool. ;)

  20. Man, I'm hungry now. FOR COOKIES! Like Elana, I'm also trying to shed a few pounds of happiness...BUT COOKIES!


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
