Easiest cookies in the world to make. SO good. So first you need to buy some Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix from Tastefully Simple. I used this recipe and added to it.
8 oz. pkg. softened cream cheese
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix™
Combine first 2 ingredients; mix until smooth. Add egg; blend well. Stir in AA Cake Mix (may have to knead with hands until dough forms). Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 11-12 minutes or until cookies are light brown on bottom (cookies should not brown on top and will only flatten slightly). Cool on baking rack. Makes about 45 cookies.
Here’s what I did differently. I added some chocolate chips (about half a bag) and a small bag of coconut. Plus a teaspoon of Almond extract.
Instead of rolling little balls I just use my Pampered Chef scoop to scoop out the cookies on to my baking stone. Easy peasy. The cookies come out a little cakey and so good!
