If you know me very well you know one of my favorite Paula Deen recipes is her Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. It is soooooo good especially when you heat it up. It is one of our son’s favorite dessert and a family pleaser.
Then I found a recipe for Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies. How could I go wrong. I had to make them, even if it was one week after making Paula’s recipe.
They are so good and already portion size when you make them as cookies. I think I have to make these again real soon..
Thank you to blogger I Am Baker! Great way to get my Paula Deen Fix in.
