Devil's Food Butterscotch Chip Cookies

Ever since I started writing this blog, I've discovered a few things about myself.  I like food.  A lot!  We all know that I'm a muffin fan, well, I'm also a cookie fan....a real cookie monster :-)  This recipe is one that I have made before (I first printed it from in 2000), but this time I changed it slightly to use ingredients on hand.  Still...turned out great!    Here it is!

2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup shortening
1 box of Devil's Food cake mix
2 cups butterscotch chip cookies (original recipe calls for peanut butter chips....I was all out so I used butterscotch chips instead!)

Preheat oven to 375F.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs.  Add in the vanilla, shortening and 1/2 of the cake mix.  Beat until light and fluffly.  Stir in the remaining cake mix and the butterscotch chips.

Using teaspoons, drop dough onto an unprepared cookie sheet.  Dough should be approximately 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until done.

Another hit, yes indeed!  Cookies always go over well, and these were no exception.  These are super easy to make (I don't usually use mixes for cookies and such, but these are good!).  I will be making them again!


  1. These sure do look great. I once tried using an organic cake recipe with cookies, but that didn't turn out well. Devil's Food cake mix is the way to go.
