Very few things compare to the smell of hot cookies fresh out of the oven.
When I opened the oven door to check on this batch of cookies, I was overwhelmed by a swarm of grody men who–-not moments before–-had been happily playing grease monkey in the backyard. Apparently the heavenly scent of the cookies made them descend on the cookie pan like a plague of stinky oily locusts.
I had to make a second batch.
Luckily, these were not just easy. They didn’t require much measuring to begin with. That’s because I made the first batch with a box of German Chocolate Cake Mix. Of which I happened to buy two!
I am a squirrel-y Girl Scout like that.
How to make German Chocolate Cake Cookies:
1 box of German Chocolate cake mix (or any flavor for any type of cake cookie)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, etc.
Mix ingredients thoroughly.
Coat tablespoon-sized balls with sugar and place on parchment paper or Silpat.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until done. (I made big cookies.)
