It's Saturday morning. The sun is up. Food Network is on. Em's still asleep, and the dog is hanging out unsure if he wants to sleep or wait around and see if I drop anything while I'm cooking. What's on the menu at 9am? Devil's Food Oatmeal cookies, i.e. "Cake Mix Cookie #3"
Cake Mix Cookie #3
Yields about 2 dozen.
1 (9 oz.) pkg. yellow cake mix (or your favorite flavor)
2/3 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
*1/2 cup chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, M&Ms (your preference)
* For a healthier cookie, substitute raisins in place of the chips.
Preheat oven to 375. In a mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, oatmeal, butter and egg. Stir in the chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately remove to wire racks to cool.

In the Test Kitchen: I used a devil's food cake, Guittard Vanilla milk chips, but the result alone wasn't so good. After coating the top of the cookies in powdered sugar THEN the "devil's food" chocolate flavor comes thru better for some reason.
