Cake Mix Cookies and an Announcement


Well, first off, I’m approaching my 150th post here soon, and I’ll be having a little giveaway of my own.  Keep your eyes out for it in the next week or two and spread the word.

Now to the cookies –

I’m more of a bake from scratch kind of woman, but I ended up with a lot of devil’s food cake mix,  and have been trying to use it all up.   For tea this week, Firecracker and I ended up baking some Reverse Chocolate Chip Cake-Mix Cookies.  (The original recipe is here, but I made a few changes, below).

Reverse Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

1 package devil’s food cake mix

1 large egg

1/4 cup strong coffee

1/4 cup oil

1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

Directions –

Preheat oven to 350F.  Combine wet ingredients thoroughly, then stir in cake mix until a stiff dough forms.   Gently fold in white chocolate chips until distributed throughout the dough.

Drop heaping teaspoonfuls onto a parchment or Silpat (love mine! Wish I owned two!)- lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until done.  (We prefered closer to 12 min, they were chewier, but at 15 minutes, they were crisp and good for dunking in a cup of tea.)

Not the best chocolate cookies I’ve ever made, but they were a thrifty, quick choice, and we did enjoy them very much with tea this week.
