Beat butter, cream cheese, vanilla and egg together. Stir in cake mix. Chill dough for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheets (I use Pam). Drop teaspoons of dough in powdered sugar & roll into balls. Place on greased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10-13 minutes or until golden. Yield: Approximately 4 dozen cookies.
