  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3 egg whites
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix all ingredients, except powdered sugar, on medium until well combined. Chill for thirty minutes. If dough feels sticky, add 1/4 cup flour or powdered sugar.
  • Take about 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Roll dough in powdered sugar (optional) and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 9-11 minutes, or until the tops start to crack. (Don't let them get brown - it will ruin the "snowball" effect.
  • Let cool on the cookie for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Dust with sifted powdered sugar.
