Notes from Paula Deen’s Test Kitchen: Devil Drop Cookies are the consistency of a cake.  Tip for making Devil Drops: put a gallon zip lock bag in a large measuring cup.  Turn sides down over rim of cup.  Spoon batter into zip lock bag.  Seal after letting out air.  Snip one corner at the bottom of zip lock bag. Using the bag as a pastry bag, squeeze out batter onto prepared cookie sheet, leaving several inches between because batter will spread while baking. This helps keep the size of the drops consistent.
