Katie H's Cream Cheese-Butter Cashew Cookies - TNT

These are sooooo good and soooo easy. I just created this recipe today. Try 'em. I bet you'll like them. Enjoy!

Katie H's Cream Cheese-Butter Cashew Cookies
(About 3 1/2 dozen)

1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened (no substitutions)
1 tsp. real vanilla extract
1 egg, at room temperature
1 (18.25-oz.) package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup coarsely chopped cashew nuts

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat until well incorporated. Reduce mixer speed and mix in cake mix and beat until fully mixed. Add chopped nuts Mix well.

Drop (about 2+ teaspoons full) onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. They will not spread much. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for about 13 to 15 minutes or until richly golden brown. Cool completely on wire racks after removing from cookie sheets. Store in an airtight container or zipper bag when completely cooled.

These sound great!

I'm thinking, spice cake mix, walnuts and raisins!

So many variations with this one!

Mmmm. Spice cake! I wonder if you could add/substitute some peanut butter in there somewhere.

I made them for a road trip we're supposed to take in a few days. Our tradition is to have homemade cookies when we go on a trip. However, they've turned out so yummy I'm not sure there'll be any left to take with us.

sometime ago we had a lengthy thread about cookies from cake mix. am sure you can find it under "cake mix cookies" many people tried lots of different kinds. i think you would enjoy the thread.

Thanks, Katie H, for a nice, simple, good-sounding cookie recipe. And thanks, Babetoo, for the note about the "cake mix cookies" thread.
