Butter Pecan Cream Cheese Cookies

These are a quick, soft, yummy, and easy cookie to make with very few ingredients.

1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/2 t maple flavoring (or vanilla)
1 box Butter Pecan cake mix

Cream butter and cream cheese together. Add egg and maple flavoring and blend well. Add dry cake mix 1/3 at a time. Mix well. Cover and chill dough for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drop by teaspoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just lightly browned. I drizzled mine with a powdered sugar, milk, and maple flavoring icing.

TIP OF THE DAY: To change this recipe use a devil's food cake mix and vanilla flavoring for Devil's Food Cream Cheese Cookies.
