Default Looking for Easy Fall Cookies/Cakes

As soon September hits and I get a cool baking day, I make my pumpkin cookies: http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...es.html?cat=22

But it's only mid-september and I think my girls are already getting tired of pumpkin cookies. Help! Can anyone reccomend a good fall cake or cookie recipe?

Default Monster Cookies

Here's a great recipe for Monster Cookies. I got it a couple years ago and I make them throughout the year. WARNING: they are very addictive. lol

MONSTER COOKIES

2 sticks butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
6 eggs
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1 Tbsp. vanilla
4 tsps. baking soda
3 cups peanut butter (creamy or smooth)
9 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup m&m's (mini m&m's work best)
1 cup chocolate chips

In a VERY large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars.
Beat eggs and add one at a time.
Stir in corn syrup and vanilla.
Add soda.
Mix well with hand mixer until creamy.
Mix in peanut butter.
Add oats.
Stir in chocolate chips and m&m's.
Drop by teaspoon on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350*F for approximately 12 min.

Dough stays fresh in the fridge for up to 6 weeks in an airtight container. However, it may not last that long as the dough tastes as good as the baked cookies. 8~)

Hi and welcome to the forum!

How about both in one?

Cake Mix Cookies

1 package cake mix, (your favorite flavor.)
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
(simple enough for kids or anyone!)

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350°......

Remove 3 tablespoons from the cake mix and set aside.

Add eggs and oil to cake mix and combine until smooth. If mix is too wet, add more dry mix. Drop in one inch balls on ungreased cookie sheet or baking pan.

Bake for approximately 7 minutes or until slightly browned, being careful not to overcook.

When my kids were little we made "Witch Finger Cookies" now I make the with my grandkids! Here is a good site...you can use your own sugar cookie recipe..but the site is a really good tutorial, in addition it has tons of other ideas for Halloween cookies.

I make cake mix cookies ALL the time, Dangermouse! Yum yum, yum. Butter pecan mix makes a DELICIOUS cookie!!!!
Adding flavoured "chips" to the mix is good too.
Peanut butter chips with a chocolate mix
White chocolate chips with a devil's food cake mix
Butterscotch chips with golden cake
I think that the combination possibilities may be endless!
I buy cake mix on sale just for these cookies.

I have a couple packages of cookie mix.

The directions on the back call for eggs and oil, just like DM's Cake Mix Cookies recipe, but not in the same quantities.

I wonder if the cookie mix and cake mix have the same ingredients in their packages.

If a cake mix can be used to make cookies, can a cookie mix be used to make a cake?

Hmmm.... maybe it's time for an experiment. If I get time today, I think I'll put a package of the cookie mix in a bowl and add the ingredients that would normally go in a boxed cake mix. See if it makes a good cake.

What will it prove, you ask? Not a thing. lol

I made the cake from the package of cookie mix. It turned out okay, but it didn't rise. It's about 3/4" high. It tastes alright, but the texture is like a spongey cookie. I guess it's a cakookie.

I think I'll stick to making cookies from the cake mix and not the other way around.

I didn't even know that there was such a thing as cookie mix.
But now I know not to use it in place of cake mix!

It comes in a pouch/bag and is made by Betty Crocker. The only way it's worth buying is if it's on sale and there's a coupon for it. Otherwise it's not worth the price. They don't taste as good as made-from-scratch cookies.

They might be worth having around for those nights when there's a winter storm and your child wait's until 11:00pm and says, "Oh mom, I forgot to tell you. I have to bring a plate of cookies to school tomorrow."

My oldest would make them herself, and my youngest knows better than to spring things like that on me. I'm the "mean" mom, spring it on me like that and you don't get it.

Cake mix cookies are the closest I get to a mix. I'm kinda snooty when it comes to cookies. I rarely buy them. I'm spoiled. Except digestive cookies. I love those and will, on occasion, buy them. I wonder if you can make them at home...... Hmm... I may have to look that up later. (Can't now, I have to go get my daughter from school. Lunch is in fifteen minutes and it is a 7 minute walk!)

Crud. I just realized that I meant to write down the ingredients that I need for the coconut pie and the buttersctoch brownies and I forgot. And grocery shopping is done for another week. Rats!
