Need Cookies?

Need Cookies? 

School is in session in many places right now...and maybe you are wanting to make treat/gift bags for teachers, a classroom, or your own children or grand children. 

Our church ladies make cookies for the college kids who come back to town as a "welcome back." 

Here is a great cookie recipe for you to use for what ever reason. I love this recipe because I can double and triple the recipe and it turns out great! I share this recipe every fall.

If you are looking for a quick and easy chocolate chip cookie recipe for kids, young and old, I have one for you. It is a Bisquick recipe that I discovered when I needed to make dozens of cookies. I needed something easy. None of this 20 ingredient stuff! :-)

NOTE: When I made the cookies I used regular bisquick instead of the heart healthy kind.
I also made the jumbo size…and adjusted the baking time. This is such an easy desert…and folks can grab one without breaking stride. I venture to say that there are no age limits up or down on who will love this cookie. 

And…do not be surprised if some people ask to take a couple for the road home.  Have those baggies ready!

from the Betty Crocker website.
(24 cookies)


cup butter, softened
cup packed brown sugar
teaspoon vanilla
cups Bisquick Heart Smart® mix
cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)


  • Heat oven to 350°F. 
  • In large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. 
  • Beat in vanilla and egg. Add Bisquick mix; beat on low speed until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Onto ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set on edges and golden brown. 
  • Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
  • *also, I use a large melon ball scoop to make all of my balls of dough uniform in size.
A blog friend, Liz from Infuse With Liz blog made these cookies and posted them on her blog here. She has nice photos of the ingredients and steps involved. 

These cookies are delicious....and I have trouble not having just one more!

Have a great weekend!
