Devil Dog Squares

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by Sherrybeth

These have been a family favorite since I was a child. When they are baking, they puff WAY up, then fall, so don't be alarmed when you check them while they bake.

Nothing like the "Devil Dogs" I grew up knowing... but still quite good. I've always done the individual cookies and then stuffed the inside of 2 cookies with the sugar filling. Using the packaged cake mix made it simple. This was a unique way to get almost the same type of dessert. Thanks for sharing. (Made for My 3 Chefs)
