Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies


A few weeks ago I was going through my hundreds of cookbooks in the kitchen and rediscovered my Bisquick cookbook.  I started looking through it and found a lot of really good recipes.  We loved the Impossible Taco Pie we had for dinner recently, so I wanted to try another recipe from the cookbook.  I decided on the chocolate chip cookies.  I wanted to see if we could tell a difference from "regular" chocolate chip cookies.  At first I wasn't sure about the cookies, so I ate another cookie and another and another.  I concluded that they were pretty good, since I couldn't stop eating them!  Next time I make these I am going to do half chocolate chips and half peanut butter chips.  I think that would put these over the top!



Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Printable Recipe)

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg
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.

  1. Yum Steph.... Those cookies look great.... You need to put all of your cookie recipes into their own cookbook --and then sell it!!!!!

  3. Intriguing. I never knew you could make cookies with Bisquick, but I suppose it makes sense. They certainly look good.

  5. I've got some bisquick left over from the same pie. I'm not a fan of cookies but these seem easy enough.

  7. Are these cookies cakey or chewy? I'm guessing cakey but not sure...

  9. Trying it with GF bisquick .. Seems to have worked great just needed to add a bit more butter because it was a bit dry with the gluten free bisquick. After adding the butter (about an extra 1/4 cup) it was great.. Thanks SO excited for gluten free cookies.

  10. A very good cookie! I didn't have bisquick so I used wheat pancake mix instead and sugar free maple syrup in place of vanilla cuz I was out. Couldn't tell a difference. Thnx for sharing the idea :)

  11. My aunt used to make these cookies and I lost her recipe after I lost her. She did not use Butter or Vanilla. She used Wesson Oil. There were only 5 ingredients. I think I will try this one with oil. I helped her make them, but forgot the amount of ingredients. Loved them because they were both cakey and crispy, but mostly because they were so easy to make and just GOOD!

  12. lotta people who reviewed this recipe on the betty crocker site said it works better with 1/2 white sugar 1/2 brown sugar and crisco instead of butter.

    1. I always use Crisco sticks or half Crisco, half butter in my chocolate chip cookies because I like them to be thick and crispy rather than flat and gooey. I get trying half white and half brown sugars would improve the recipe, too. My kids also like when I mix half chocolate chips with half butterscotch chips.

  15. These were fluffy but way too salty...I never add salt or use very little in my baking, so I really can taste the salt in the bis quick mix. Quick and easy,tho. Might try with my own baking mix

    1. Do you have pancake mix over there? That would work also.

    3. i know this is an old posting but wanted to tell Carouh5 that there are many recipes on the internet for DIY Bisquick mix. I like the one at http://penniesandpancakes.blogspot.com/ The ingredients are common and I don't think you will have any problem finding them

  17. Best Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER! This is now my go to recipe! Thx for sharing!

  18. Ok these were awesome (I like that they are salty) but the mix was dry (had to add 1/4 cup extra butter). My main complaint is that they burned on the bottom while I was trying to get them browned on top. Any tips for that? I have a convection oven so actually e pelted them to come out perfect

  21. Just made these, and I have to agree, they are scrumptious!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just made these for the first time. They taste pretty good but they are a liitle dry. I used the Heart Smart Bisquick, maybe that's the reason? I will give them another try sometime but maybe use more butter or less Bisquick. Maybe an extra egg??

    1. When baking you should always use real butter.

  23. I made this with a smart balance vegan butter stick in lieu of butter and dairy-free semisweet chocolate chunks (my son is allergic to milk) and they were SO yummy, thanks! Everyone keeps asking me to make them again. Easy too.

  24. These were some of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. I halved the recipe and I made 16 cookies each with 1.5 tablespoons of dough. I baked them for just over 10 minutes and they were absolutely perfect!!

  25. Just made these and this is a keeper. So good and super easy. Yes there a bit salty but salty/sweet. This recipe made 40 small cookies for me. People at work will be very happy tomorrow. Thank you for the recipe.

  26. I just made these cookies this afternoon. I didn't find them much easier than standard cookies but it is sometimes nice to not have to worry about measuring out each of the separate dry ingredients.

    The cookies themselves turned out nice and soft, however, I modified them to include oats, so I added some extra water (added 2 cups oats and 4 tablespoons water). I baked them for 10 minutes and they were very pale on top but nice and brown on the bottom but cooked all the way through.

    I probably won't make them again because I like my standard cookie recipe, but they were fun to try. :)

  27. Just baked some. I cut the recipe in half but used an extra pat of butter. They are delicious! Definitely will be my go to recipe from now on.

  28. I used this recipe tonight for a quick go to dessert.... A Huge Hit!!! thank you for everyone's comments...due to your comments I added 1/4 cup butter shortening, I did the 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, I added an additional 1/2 tsp vanilla, I added just enough buttermilk to moisten, then I used mini chocolate chips, chopped pecans and coconut. These will flatten out and take a little longer to cook but they will be crspy and chewy! Thank you for the recipe and the comments!!!

  29. Will the Gluten-Free Bisquick work just as well?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I made these today .. Like some of the others I found them to be a little on the dry side . I would try an extra egg perhaps because there is enough butter in them. I did use heart healthy bisquik . Will definitely make again . :)

  31. so easy! I just made these, they're in the oven now. I ran out of Bisquick, only had 1 and 3/4 cup, so I used flour to substitute the remaining 1 cup. they look good, and the batter was tasty. Hoping they taste as good as yours look!

  32. When you want your cookies to stay soft & moist put them in an air tight container & put 2 or 3 slices of bread on top of them. They will stay moist, I do it all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just made these today and they are the best ever! Added 1/4 shortening and did half brown and half white sugar. Everyone was surprised that I used baking mix!

    ReplyDelete
  34. They came out tasty. They are a bit crumbly. I added a bit of oil and may use more next time. I also used mint chocolate chips and pecans. I am thinking of trying these sans the chips and going pecan sandies style maybe with double butter.

  35. Trying this receipt now, wish me luck!!

  36. I tend to do my chocolate chip cookies in a bar form (spread the batter out in a jelly roll pan) because it is soooo much easier. I wonder how these would do that way....

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow these are good they taste awesome I made them and have them for breakfast.
    Hehe.

  38. Would this work with a gluten free flour? I won't use Bisquick because it isn't organic. If so, would the measurements still be the same? Or I have coconut flour too.
