I stumbled upon this recipe when trying to use up my pantry and refrigerator ingredients after the storm. I forgot how rich the cream cheese makes the cookies and how much the kids love to make them. Use any filling ingredients, like chocolate chips, white chips, butterscotch or mint chips or substitute and add dried fruit and nuts. This works both pareve and dairy.
1 box cake mix, any flavor
8 ounces pareve or dairy cream cheese, room temperature
4 tablespoons margarine, room temperature
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips, or other chips or nuts or dried fruit
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixer beat cream cheese and Add egg and vanilla; mix until well blended.
Stir in cake mix a little at a time until it's all blended and then add any chips, candy or nuts, as you like
Spoon large tablespoons full of dough onto cookie sheer and bake for 10 minutes, until edges are brown.
