Christmas Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies

Christmas Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies are a delicious treat perfect for the holiday season. Here’s a recipe to make them:


  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (about 18 oz) white cake mix
  • Red and green sprinkles for decoration
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until well combined.
  3. Add Cake Mix: Gradually mix in the cake mix until fully incorporated. The dough will be quite sticky.
  4. Chill Dough: Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least one hour. This makes the dough easier to handle.
  5. Form Cookies: Once chilled, roll the dough into balls, about 1-inch in diameter. Roll each ball in powdered sugar, then in red and green sprinkles.
  6. Bake: Place the dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, spaced about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  7. Cool and Serve: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with more powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
