Gooey Butter Cookies

Find it on Pinterest

Cooks Note: I am not a huge cookie fan. Yes, I know, it's weird, but I'm just not. Don't get me wrong, cookies are good, but if I had to chose a dessert to eat it would be something else, like bread pudding or flan. But I was going to a cookie exchange and I needed something quick, so I saw Gooey Butter Cookies on Pinterest and it made me think of Paula Deen. So, I made them. VERY easy. And surprisingly, really tasty. I hate it when you make cookies and then after a while they get all hard and old tasting. These don't, they stay moist and yummy and sort of taste like a cookie/cupcake. Try them for your Christmas Eve festivities! Enjoy!
