2. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. 3. Stir in egg and vanilla.
4. Add cake mix, and stir until will blended. 5. Roll into 1 inch balls and roll the balls in the confectioner's sugar.
6. Place the balls on an ungreased cookie sheet. 7. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove the baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
