Gluten Free Devil's Food Cake Mix Cookies!
Well, the events of last week left me a little on the overwhelmed side. Let's just say there was a roller coaster of emotions, but nothing a little time with my boys this weekend couldn't help. After all three of my guys were done alternating funky viruses (I'm waiting for them to hit me! knock on wood they will pass by me...), we decided that a little family time was in order. We didn't do anything in particular, but it was a nice weekend filled with walks and games...and a little bit of shopping for some school clothes to go with the changing season. All in all it was a great weekend...just what we all needed.

I also took some time to go through some pictures and recipes I've made lately so hopefully I can catch up on some sharing. You know what they say...sharing is caring (hopefully that doesn't go for the viruses that have been going around). Anyway, I made these exactly 1 month ago. I can't believe how behind I am! I figured it was time to share these tasty treats...

While I normally go for making things from scratch, I like the ease of semi-homemade eats too! We used to bake cake mix cookies back in our non-gluten free days. I hadn't tried a gluten free version yet. I had cream cheese frosting left over from Jay's birthday cupcakes, so I thought some soft cakey devil's food cookies would pair well with it. Indeed it did!

The guys went crazy over these! Soft, cakey, creamy, gooey...really what's not to like?

Devil's Food Cake Mix Cookies

1 chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker's GF)
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Comine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. The dough will be too thick to use a mixer. Scoop the dough using a small cookie scoop onto the lined baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire cooling wrack. Cool completely before filling. I filled mine with cream cheese frosting.

From scratch or semi homemade or both? I love coming up with new exciting recipes, but sometimes l like a little simplicity and help.

Have a great week!

I'm sharing these on Slightly Indulgent Tuesday and Allergy Free Wednesday this week!
