Cheesecake Cookies

Ok, I didn't pick the dessert this time, my husband did.  I don't like a recipe that starts with a box of anything.  The fact it said half a box was annoying too.  I doubled the recipe so I used the whole thing.  I also melted some currant jelly to fill some of the cookies rather than make them all caramel.  Despite my distrust of the box and my somewhat indifferent attitude towards sweets, I liked these.  The rest of the family, who do not share my prejudice, loved them. 

1/2 a Box of White Cake Mix
1 Egg
4 oz. Cream Cheese
2 tbsp. Melted Butter
1 Cup Caramel Sauce
1 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs

A cupcake pan

In a medium bowl mix together the Cake mix, melted butter, egg & cream cheese.  use a spoon to really smear it and blend it well into a dough-like consistency!
Scoop some batter into a cupcake pan .about 1/4 the way up the sides…
Bake them at 350 for about 15 minutes, just until they’re firm.
While they’re warm, indent them with something smaller than they are to form a cookie cup…
Let them cool and then rub some water (or melted butter) lightly around the rim of the cookie cup and dip it into some Graham Cracker Crumbs

I made my caramel sauce:
In a saucepan, cover an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk with water. Simmer for 3 (I did mine 4)  hours, adding water as necessary to keep the can submerged in the water
