Dangerously Delicious Cookies

March 28, 2008
This is what happens to dangerously delicious cookies

My friend Amy brought us some dangerously delicious cookies after Hana Kate was born. I was SO glad when she posted the recipe on her blog, which also includes some other great recipes. (Hers looked a little nicer than my picture below, though.) Since I had all the ingredients on hand, I decided to make some on Thursday!

Here’s Amy’s recipe for German Chocolate Cookies:

1 box german chocolate cake mix
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans, or walnuts
2 eggs
1/2 oil

Mix together and drop by teaspoons about 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 F for 8-10 minutes. Let cool about 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet.

Makes ~4 dozen cookies

What they looked like before 😉 :


These cookies came close to topping our favorite cookie recipe–these Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies from Tammy’s Recipes:

2 cups butter or margarine
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
6 cups flour
12 ounce bag (or as many as you prefer) chocolate chips


Cream butter and sugar; add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add remaining ingredients and stir until fully mixed. Drop by teaspoons onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.
Tammy says they yield 3 to 4 dozen, but in my experience this recipe always produces over 100 cookies! And trying to double the recipe will most certainly overwhelm your Kitchen Aid Mixer! 🙂

    Thanks for the reminder, and thanks for reading! 😉

    I tried Coldstone Icecream for the first time on my birthday last September and loved it. Daniel’s is coming up in May, so I’d better sign him up.

    I just looked at the directory…and realized HOW MANY April birthdays you have!!!! Whoa! And your husband’s is in March. Must be busy at your house this time of year. 🙂
