I don’t know about you but I have always associated Bisquick baking mix with PANCAKES – probably because that’s what we always used it for when I was a kid – every week my dad would make Mickey shaped pancakes with apples, and they were my favorite! Now that I am an adult living on my own, I have come to realize what an amazing shortcut/helping hand Bisquick can be for so many things in the kitchen! I recently wrote about how Bisquick makes a quick and delicious cinnamon roll, but today I am in the mood for some COOKIES (as I often am), so I figured it was time to incorporate some more Bisquick into my baking
Don’t these look amazing? Pair them with some ice cold milk and you’ve got yourself a meal – wait, I mean a snack. I don’t eat cookies for dinner, I’m an adult! Ok, well, these are so good you may want to eat them for dinner. No judgment here.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 3/4 cups Bisquick baking mix
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
1/2 cup nuts, chopped, if desired (optional)
Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, mix butter, sugar, vanilla and egg. Stir in Bisquick mix, chocolate chips and nuts. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, d about 2 inches apart; flatten slightly. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
One bowl cookie dough – now that’s right up my alley!
I got to use my new cookie scoop on these – aren’t they cute?
I can’t imagine an easier recipe – seriously quick, smells great, and tastes even better – these were great warm from the oven, nice and fluffy and an almost cake-like texture, but still a cookie consistency (as if that made any sense ha). The best part is that I had literally all the ingredients on hand – I skipped the nuts but that’s more a personal preference, and everything else I had waiting and ready for me to whip these up!
Are they going to win any bake-offs? No. Are they delicious, easy, and moist? Yes. So, it’s a WIN in my book!
