Almond Cream Cheese Crinkles




It's December, and I have Christmas cookies on my mind.  This might be my new favorite cookie.  These are so simple, but so delicious.  I have to warn you, these cookies are not low-cal.  They have a block of cream cheese and a stick of butter in them.

These cookies use cake mix as the base and only take minutes to make. The dough needs to refrigerate overnight or at least several hours. It will be too sticky if you don't refrigerate it.  They are delicious and very addictive.  Chicken Legs recommends waiting to eat the cookies until they are completely cool (he did an unscientific test - for the blog).  These are a new holiday tradition at our house!



Almond Cream Cheese Crinkles
(Printable Recipe)


1 box Golden Butter cake mix
1 egg
1 stick butter, softened
1 tsp almond extract
8 oz cream cheese, softened
powdered sugar

In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, egg, almond extract, cream cheese and butter with a hand-held mixer. Cover dough and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 325. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and coat in powdered sugar. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. The tops will look under cooked, but the bottoms will be golden brown. Allow to cool completely before serving.

  1. This is a gooey butter cookie and the regular recipe calls for 1\4 tsp. Vanilla extract. So maybe add 1/4 tsp. Almond extract instead

  10. I haven't ever made any of the "Gooey Butter" cake or cookie recipes but this one looks really good and super easy. I think the combination of almond extract & cream cheese will make it decadent and perfect with a cup of tea. I think I might try adding some slivered almonds as well just to give it a little crunch.

  12. I just mixed up a double batch of this cookie batter and I am going to be baking cookies for days! I'm using the small Pampered Chef cookie scoop, and I would say the cookies are "two-bite" size. I also had to bake them a few minutes longer than the recipe calls, but that could be my oven.

    I used Duncan Hines Golden Butter cake mix - found it at Kroger. Gooey butter cake is the name of another yummy recipe that uses cake mix and cream cheese.

  15. Hi, found your recipe from Pinterest. I also would like to know how many cookies can I make with this recipe. Thank you!

  16. Thank you so much for this recipe.I increased the almond extract to 1 TBS for my taste preference .This is my most requested cookie to make. Everyone loves them. I suggest using the Duncan Hines if you can find it. The Pillsbury Golden Butter works but it much more yellow in color like a yellow cake mix than the ones shown
