Devil's Food Cookies (from a cake mix)
Simple and so good- these are great to add to your cookie sampler platter for Christmas.
It's always good to have a box of cake mix handy for those unexpected times when cookies are needed.
I make them with and without nuts, with and without powdered sugar--and they're always a hit.
1 box devil's food cake mix
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tbsp. water
1/2 c. vegetable shortening
1/2 c. chopped nuts
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix cake mix, eggs, water and shortening until well blended. Stir in nuts. Shape into small balls, then roll in powdered sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 48 cookies.
