Zach often gets frustrated with my "random" baking. I'll throw just about anything into a batch of cookies; one time it was even an entire cookie within a cookie (seen here...for the record it worked!). So the other day when I told him I wanted to bake something, he politely informed me, "Boys really just like plain ol' chocolate chip cookies".
"Fine", I told him, "but I'm at least trying a new recipe". When I stumbled upon these easy chocolate chip cookies with Bisquick in the mix, I knew it was a winner. Plus we already had all the necessary ingredients. Score! Happy hubby, happy baker.
Super easy, super good. You can't, after all, go wrong with plain ol' chocolate chip cookies.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups Bisquick
1 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; 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.

note: My first batch turned out a little flat (but still yummy!) so I refrigerated the dough for about 20 minutes and the second batch held their shape better (as pictured).
Happy baking, friends!
