“Nuts” for Coconuts And Cookies


I was looking in the cabinets for something new to create. So, I decided on German Chocolate Cookies made from cake mix. We had some German Chocolate cake mix on hand, coconut and the other ingredients.

I started with looking online for a recipe using cake mix in the cookie and found the ehow.com article How to Make Delicious German Chocolate Cake Cookies and tweaked the recipe to create my  German Choco-Coco Cookies.

Something simple and sweet. Cookies don’t usually last long in this house! I can tell these won’t last long either!

Preheat oven to 350ºF and line baking/cookie sheet(s) with parchment paper.

Add cake mix,

sugar,

eggs,

oil,

and apple sauce into a large mixing bowl.

With hand mixer, blend until smooth and all combined. (Mixture will become harder to mix.)

Fold in coconut.

Using a large spoon, scoop out dough and place onto cookie sheet(s) spaced about 2 inches apart.

Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 11 – 12 minutes. Remove and let cool on hot cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes then carefully remove parchment and set on wire racks for at least 10 minutes.

Before serving, sift a little powdered sugar on top of cookies (optional)

OR dollop a small spoonful of frosting on top of cookies (optional).

ENJOY!!
