I am a St. Louis native and miss having Gooey Butter Cake. These cookies are the next best thing, and SOOOO easy to make! One helpful hint: press the cookies face-down in powdered sugar after they have cooled. This gives them even more of an authentic St. Louis-style Gooey Butter Cake taste. Enjoy!!! 5 stars

I made these last night and "gooey butter" is no where near the description of this cookie. It's cakey and that's it. I live in the town that originated the gooey butter cake and this isn't even close. 2 stars

First year I really tried to make a bunch of Christmas cookies. Usually my mom makes them, and most I'd do is help. Now I live with my dad, so I can experiment more. Anyways, this was the 1st cookie I made this season, and we didn't have a whole lot of ingredients as far as chocolate chips or any of the icing stuff for the sugar cookies, so I was just gooogling around looking for a recipe I had everything for. I basically found this by accident, and I gotta say they are really good. I brought a bunch of cookies to work, and out of all the different ones I made (about 5-6 differnt kinds) these were the ones I was asked for the recipe for. I guess they are a little different.

I actually refrigerated the dough overnight anyway, cuz I didn't realize we didn't have the powdered sugar. After reading the other reviews, I realized that not only did it still obviosuly work, but it was easier to use, so I guess it worked out. Looking foward to trying lemon flavored cake, as I love lemon cookies. I will definitely try that one next time. ALso want to find a recipe for that gooey butter cake.

Hope everyone has a great christmas, and hi to Dave, if he reads this, lmaooooo.... he's the one I'm sending this link to :-)

These cookies are phenomenal. Next time, I'll make them a bit smaller since mine spread a bit, but they were to die for and not bland at all. I used Christmas sprinkles to spice them up a bit. Got rave reviews. Yummy! 5 stars

These cookies are awesome.I like to use different flavors of cake mix.I sometimes frost them with a powder sugar glaze the same flavor of the cake mix. 5 stars

Very good & easy to make. I used French Vanilla cake mix. I wanted them to look different from other cookies on my cookie tray so instead of rolling them in powdered sugar, I rolled some in red sugar & some in green. I also flattened them out a little before baking so they had more of a cookie shape as opposed to a ball. They came out very pretty! Thanks. 5 stars

If youve ever eaten one you would know these are the best cookies in the world! I make them every year and always get rave reviews! I divide the batter in to equal parts and then to one part add red food color and the other I add green then roll them into little balls and roll them in powdered sugar and bake it makes them a little more festive! 5 stars
