Spice Cake Cookies

Ok so as some of you know I went down to New Orleans this weekend. My grandmother was having a huge eightieth birthday party at the country club.

We had a great time and it was so good being back home. Now we're only four hours away right now but it seems we never go home that often. So this was a treat. 

Well we are back my surprise that we didn't die....yes DIE.  Have I ever told you that my husband falls asleep in a matter of seconds? Seriously you can be taking to him and he'll just doze off. Yep!
Well normally I do all of the driving because, well I like my life.....BUT.....I decided to let him drive. 

The entire drive I was tired? Baby your eyes are closing. Baby hey watch that car. Baby RED light!.............

Which, to all of my comments he replied "I'm not sleeping"

Now look.....either he's calling me a liar or he's sleeping .....right? sounds right to me. 

But Nope I must be making the stuff up. Gotta be. From now on he can ride in the passenger's seat. He can nap. 

Well before we left I baked six dozen cookies for the kids (they stayed home). No worries My son is 18 so they were all in good hands. They may have played video games all weekend and ate trash like pizza rolls, but I came home to 5 children who were still alive and look like they had more fun than they could handle. 

Wanna know how I made these? I thought you would. I got the recipe from my brother in law, who loves to bake as well. 

These are Spice Cake Cookies.....Don't they look yummy? Well they are! 

Spice Cake Cookies
1 box Duncan Hines Spice Cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup Heath Toffee Bits (1/2 bag)

Preheat oven to 350˚
Mix cake mix, eggs and oil until completely mixed.

 After that's completely mixed....
Fold in Heath toffee bits.

Fold in well so the toffee bits are evenly distributed.

Using a cookie cookie dough on cookie sheets

  Bake for 10-15 minutes.
I do mine for 11 min, but each oven varies.
 I take them out when the centers are a little underdone.
Let cool on cooling rack and serve to your little cookie monsters. 


  1. How wonderful that your grandmother just celebrated her 80th birthday. Best wishes to her. These cookies look great and I'm glad you made it home safe and sound. WHEW!

  2. was quite a celebration. I'm glad I made it home safe too....I was very surprised I did make it home.
