Cooking from the Blogs-What I Made
With a hectic week, one less night to cook, and travel for the weekend, I did not think that I would be making any recipes from blogs this week. It turns out I had time to make just one recipe, and, is no one surprised that the recipe was for cookies.
Thursday, Marsha over at the Better Baker, posted a recipe for "Melt-in-Your Mouth" Pecan Toffee Cookies. They looked so good and were an easy-to-make recipe using a cake mix. We like to take some cookies with us for snacking when we travel, and these seemed just the thing to take this time. I got up a little early and made these before we left on Friday morning. The cookies truly lived up to their name. My hubby said that they were like eating popcorn; meaning, that if you were not careful, you would scarf them all down and they would be gone before you know it. It think this basic idea would work well with a chocolate cake mix. I am also anxious to try these with a Butter Pecan cake mix although that flavor is a little difficult to find where I live. I will be giving these a try with the homemade cake mix, too. Thanks, Marsha, for sharing a great, versatile recipe.
