My cousin’s kids are truly a bit mischievous. There’s just no way around it! Whenever I visit her, I make sure to stay away from her boys’ line of sight.
Because when those boys notice that you notice them, they will turn their attention to you and you will not like it. She has three boys. The oldest being 8, the second six, and the third five. The most mischievous is the second child and he is the mastermind of all the things the three of them did. Now Barbara is a disciplinarian. I know how strict she is because I often see her reprimanding her kids. She’s not the type to spoil them and I think that’s really a good thing.
However, just like in every child, there are times when you cannot control the kids simply by reprimanding them. These kids have their stubborn moments, and when these stubborn moments come out to play, anyone will have a hard time convincing them to behave. Not Barbara though.
She finally found a way to control her sons’ behavior and it’s in the form of a cookie. His sons love her pecan cookies and they will do anything just to have those for their snacks. Barbara doesn’t really like using a form of “bait”, but if it’s the only way she can make her sons behave, then she will do it. At least they will behave and not cause trouble to other people.
1/2 c Land O’ Lakes butter, softened
1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
2 large Eggland’s eggs
1 Tbsp water
1 pkg heath toffee bits
1/2 to 1 c Kirkland pecans, chopped
Pre-heat oven to 350*F.
Mix butter, add cake mix, eggs & water. Mix well with hand mixer.
Add toffee bits and pecans, mix by hand.
Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350* for 10 minutes for small cookies. For larger cookies bake for 12-13 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack. They won’t look done, but when they cool, they solidify, still being a soft chewy cookie.
