    2 eggs
    1 box of Pillsbury Devil’s Food Cake Mix
    2 cups flour
    1/2 cup oil
    1/2 cup water
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 tsp cloves ( I use less than ˝ tsp since family does not like this flavoring)
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
    chocolate chips (about 1 cup)


Beat the 2 eggs and add cake mix. Mix well by hand. Add the flour, oil, water. Mix. Add seasonings and nuts. Mix. I keep mixing the ingredients in order to keep mixture moist and so everything has been absorbed by the dough. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit about 15 minutes to become more moist.

Have chocolate chips handy. Take dough, add 5 chocolate chips and roll into shape of a meatball. Place on ungreased cookie tray. We add chips to cookies as we roll them and not in the dough so that each cookie has an equal number of chips.

Bake at 325 degrees for 7-8 minutes on bottom rack, then move to top rack and bake an additional 7-8 minutes on top rack.

Cool on wire racks. When cooled, frost with a mixture of confectioner’s sugar and water or milk. Frosting should not be too thin or will run down cookies. Keep in tightly covered container.

Serving Size: Makes 26-28 cookies
