True Blood Red Velvet Cookies

     With the premiere of True Blood Season 5 debuting tonight, I wanted to make something deliciously sweet to bring over to the Grants.  So I searched on Pinterest for some inspirations.....and I found this FangTastic recipe for Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies on a a great blog Peace of Cake.  Thought they would be perfect for tonight's festivities.

Here's how to make your own...

8oz. (1 brick) Cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 c. Butter, softened (1 stick)
1 egg
1 t. Vanilla
1 (18-ounce) box red velvet cake mix
Powdered sugar, for rolling/dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth.

Beat in egg, then the vanilla.

Beat in the cake mix.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up.

Roll batter into tablespoon-sized balls and then roll them in powdered sugar.
Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, 2 inches apart.

Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and "gooey."

Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioners' sugar, if desired.
