Weekend Recipe Exchange - Cookies!

This week, Theresa chose cookies as the theme for the recipe exchange. I will admit to you that it has been some time since I actually baked cookies from scratch. I buy that break & bake dough from the grocery store & let the kids put it on the cookie sheet. Everyone is happy. However, it's about time I started actually baking again. I found this recipe on the Food Network Site. I may make it this week. Mmmmmmm!

Devil's Food Cookies

1 box (18 1/4 ounces) devil's food cake mix
2 eggs 1/4 cup hot coffee or hot water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup bits of chocolate-toffee candy

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine cake mix, eggs, coffee, oil and flour in large bowl. Beat on low speed until all ingredients are moistened; then beat on high speed for 2 minutes. Dough will be sticky. Fold in chocolate pieces, pecans and candy until evenly distributed. Using about half of the batter, drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 4 to 5 minutes or until firm. With a metal spatula, transfer the cookies to the wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve slightly warm or store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
