Red Velvet Cookies

On the 20th day of Christmas treats (whew!) I give to you - Red Velvet Cookies!  These are so pretty and so easy to make.  I love cookies that use a cake mix! Hahaha

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 c butter, softened
1 box Red Velvet cake mix
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
powdered sugar, to roll cookies in

Cream together cream cheese and butter in large mixing bowl.  Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.  Add cake mix, and mix until the red color is evenly distributed.

Cover, and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Roll dough into balls (roughly the size of a ping-pong ball).  Roll each ball in powdered sugar and coat completely.  Place onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 F 10-12 minutes.  Don't overbake - cookies will still look a little gooey in the cracks.

Cool on wire rack and sprinkle with more powdered sugar if necessary.
