Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies

Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies

For my brother Devon. Who loves these cookies and always asks for the recipe. Love you, little bro. 💙🍪

1 box of yellow cake mix

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature

1/4 cup of butter, room temperature

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add egg and vanilla and mix until well blended. (I used a mixer for this part only because it is easier.)

Stir in cake mix a little at a time with a wooden spoon until it’s all blended.

Spoon onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes until edges are brown. Don’t overcook. They are supposed to be soft.


Instant Pot Cream Cheese Spaghetti

2 Pound Lean Ground Beef

Seasonings (Salt, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Italian Seasoning)

1 Pound Spaghetti Noodles (uncooked)

1 (24 Ounce) Jar Spaghetti Sauce (Or more depending on your taste)

1 cup water

1 (14.5 Ounce) Can Diced Tomatoes

4oz cream cheese

 1. Set the Instant Pot to saute’ and add the ground beef.  Add the seasonings. Cook the meat and seasonings until it’s completely browned.  Turn the Instant Pot off. Drain any extra grease from meat.

2. Break the spaghetti in half and place on top of meat in the Instant Pot. Pour over the spaghetti sauce, diced tomato, and water.  Push the spaghetti down to make sure it is completely covered in liquid. Add the cream cheese on top. (Just set the 4oz cube on top)

3. Seal the instant pot and set it to pressure cook, high pressure, 13 minutes cooking time.  When the time is up, use manual quick release to open the Instant Pot.  Stir the spaghetti well to make sure the cream cheese mixes in.
