How to Make Eggnog Gooey Butter Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and butter. Cream until smooth.
  3. Add the egg and nutmeg and mix well.
  4. Stir in the rum extract.
  5. Add the cake mix and baking powder and stir until all of the ingredients are well incorporated.
  6. Cover and chill for 30 minutes for easier handling.

  8. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Do not allow the cookies to brown. They should be soft and a bit gooey on top when you take them out of the oven.
