This recipe is SOO easy, and makes chewy, delicious cookies.

You will need:

1  box lemon cake mix aka “Pack Cake”

1 8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup butter, softened

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

Powdered Sugar for rolling them in.

Mix all of the ingredients together (except the powdered sugar)

Then use a cookie scoop, and drop them into a bowl of powdered sugar

Roll them around in the bowl, and try to make them into balls.

Arrange them on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.  I doubt you will find parchment paper in Belize, so if you don’t have a silicone baking mat, get one asap!!!  They are awesome! Nothing ever sticks to them, and you don’t even get the cookie sheet dirty.  I HATE gross cookie sheets, you know, the ones with burnt on crud that people just keep using…Well, these will prevent that.

I can’t wait to try them with different flavours of “pack cake”.  Red Velvet is high on the list!
