Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

There's not a whole lot of space for me in my current apartment, so some recipes are on hold until I move (2 more months!) and have more space to hold ingredients, cookware, etc. One day I just desperately wanted chocolate chip cookies. I even had all the ingredients! Well...almost all. I did not have baking powder and/or baking soda. Which was required for EVERY recipe. And, I was lazy, I didn't want to have to go out and buy any. Not to mention I wasn't sure I'd have room to store the leftover. Then, in a remarkable quirk of fate, I stumbled upon a Bisquick chocolate chip cookie recipe! "Whaaa???" I thought! I debated it. I was like, "What if they're bad? Then it'll be a complete waste!". I even petitioned my facebook friends to see if they had any experience with this (no one did). In the end I decided "I really want chocolate chip cookies. And how bad could it be?".

Let me tell you what-this was a success! The first thing that indicated this would turn out well was the fact that the cookie dough was scrumdidlyumptious! Mmm...I want some now.....
Ah! Sorry, got distracted. Anyway, I baked them (what was left after I assaulted the dough), and ate them, and they were great! The texture is definitely different, it will be obvious this is different than a normal cookie, it sort of reminds you of a Bisquick biscuit (which makes sense), but in a still perfectly tasty way! Don't get me wrong, I would never choose these before a good old fashioned real chocolate chip cookie. But, if you are feeling lazy, or just are missing a couple ingredients, these are a great way to still get your cookie fix!

Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 3/4 cup Bisquick
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli 60% Dark Chocolate Chips and cut them each in half so they weren't so big. But use whatever you like.)
  • Optional: whatever nuts you may desire (#1-get your mind out of the gutter! This is a family blog! #2-I don't like nuts mucking around in my chocolate chip cookies so I did not put any in.)
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix sugar, vanilla, egg, and melted (and cooled to room temperature) butter with a mixer (I used a hand mixer, you can use that or a stand, whatever you fancy).
  • Stir in Bisquick and chocolate chips (this is the point where you stand over the bowl and shovel handfuls into your mouth like you always fantasized you'd do when you grew up and Mom wasn't there to yell at you).
  • Put on a baking/cookie sheet (I'd spray some non-stick cooking spray on there, but I'm paranoid about sticking) and bake 7-10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.

(Ghiradelli, Betty Crocker, and Bisquick are-unfortunately-not paying me for my endorsement. I'm just being honest with you folks, why do you always gotta make me get all legal on ya? Sheesh.
I'm sorry. Let's not fight. This isn't your fault. Anyway, yeah, I'm poor and just give out free kudos. That is all.)
