Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound (4 sticks) butter or margarine, divided (do not use vegetable oil spreads)
2 3/4 Cups (11 oz.) Flour
1 pkg. White Cake Mix


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In small batter bowl, microwave 2 sticks of the butter on HIGH 1 minute or until melted. Using a knife, slice remaining butter into 1/2-inch pieces; add to melted butter, tossing to coat. Allow butter to stand 3-5 minutes or until softened.

Meanwhile, accurately measure flour into large bowl. Add cake mix to flour; blend well to break up any large lumps. Whisk butter until smooth and free of lumps. If necessary, return butter to microwave for 10-20 seconds or until creamy and pourable. Do NOT melt completely. Pour butter, all at once, into dry ingredients; thoroughly scrape butter bowl. Using spoon, mix until dry ingredients are incorporated and dough is smooth. (If dough is too stiff to stir, knead until smooth by hand.) Shape dough, bake and decorate as desired.

Flavor Variations:

Chocolate: Substitute one package devil's food cake mix for the white cake mix. Add flour and butter as recipe directs.

Spice: Substitute one package yellow cake mix for white cake mix. Add 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Add flour and butter as recipe directs.

Peanut Butter: Substitute one package yellow cake mix for the white cake mix. Add flour as directed. Whisk 2/3 Cup Peanut Butter into softened butter until smooth; add to dry ingredients as recipe directs.

This dough is versatile, can spread cream cheese on top, and add pie filling.
