Some simple cookie recipes include cake mix gooey butter cookies on BettyCrocker.com and chewy sugar cookies from RealSimple.com. The BettyCrocker.com recipe requires fewer ingredients since it uses Betty Crocker SuperMoist yellow cake mix.
To make Betty Crocker's cake mix gooey butter cookies preheat the oven to 375 F. Beat together 8 ounces of cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter with a spoon, then stir in 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1 egg. Finally, add the cake mix. Make 1-inch balls with the dough and coat each with powdered sugar. Bake the cookies on ungreased cookie sheets for 11 to 15 minutes.
