Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, stir cake mix with melted butter, egg and vanilla until smooth. Divide dough evenly into two bowls. Stir 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon into one of the two bowls.

Fill a cookie scoop, or large spoon half full with cinnamon dough and fill the remaining half with the plain dough. Pinch and twist the dough together with your fingers to form a swirl. Flip the cookie dough ball upside down. Using thumbs, create a cavern to hide a tablespoon of cream cheese inside each, wrapping cookie dough edges around to seal entirely.

Place dough rounds, seal side down, on the cookie sheet 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly (they're AWESOME warm) or completely before digging in!

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month. Duncan Hines Classic Yellow Cake Mix can be substituted if needed.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
