Mom's German Chocolate Cookies
1 box German chocolate cake mix with pudding included
1/2 c. instant mashed potato flakes
1 t. cream of tartar
1 T. cinnamon
3/4 c. melted butter
3 T. milk
1 large egg
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/3 c. sugar
1 c. powdered sugar
2 t. unsweetened cocoa

Heat oven to 350F. Combine cake mix, potatoes, tartar, cinnamon, butter, milk, and
egg. Blend well. Stir in pecans. Let stand about 5 minutes.
Place sugar in bowl or onto plate. Drop the dough by
teaspoonfuls into sugar. Gently toss until sugar coated. Place on ungreased cookie sheet - about 2 inches apart. Bake at 350F
