#12_ Mudslide Cookies

Mudslide Cookies
I call this emergency cookies because you can make a batch of this in under 20 minutes. It is super simple that it only calls for 3 ingredients and baking time is 9-12 minutes if you want soft and fudgey and gooey, 12 minutes if you want them crunchy. Its as easy as 1 2 3!


1 box devils food cake mix

2 eggs

1/2 cup shortening

1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper
2.In a bowl, empty the cake mix. Add the eggs and shortening. Mix until well blended
3. Roll dough into 1" to 1 1/2 " balls, (use an ice cream scooper for a more uniform size) and place them onto the prepared pan
4. Bake for 10- 12 minutes
5. Cool on racks

This will make about 2 dozen cookies or more
For the soft and fudgey kind, I bake them for exactly 11 minutes. The cookies will be really soft and will look like they are under bake at this point but once transferred on to the cooling rack to cool for a few minutes, they will be perfect. Ovens vary so you need to do a little experimenting.
