Almond Cream Cheese Crinkles (Gooey Butter Cookies) SO good! Only 6 ingredients - Cake mix, egg, butter, almond extract, cream cheese, and powdered sugar. Took these to a cookie swap and everyone raved about them. One of my favorite Christmas cookies. SO easy and SO delicious! #cakemix #cookies #almond
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 325ºF.
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.
The dough needs to refrigerate overnight or at least several hours. It will be too sticky if you don't refrigerate it.
Once cool, place the cookies into an air-tight container. They will keep up to 3 days.
Can Almond Cream Cheese Crinkles be frozen? Yes! Once the cookies are completely cool, place them in a freezer bag and freeze. They will keep 3 to 4 months. When ready to eat let the cookies thaw 30 minutes to an hour on the counter.
