Ingredients to make Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Unsalted Butter: Starting with the basics, butter is the way to go for that rich, dreamy texture we all luv and crave in cookies. I am not a fan of using margarine because sometimes it can impact on the texture of these cookies, but if that’s all you have, don’t sweat it. The difference isn’t massive (but I guess my perfectionist side just can’t let it go).
  • Brown Sugar: Packed brown sugar brings in that moist, chewy texture along with a depth of flavor that’s just unbeatable.
  • Vanilla Extract: Pure vanilla extract is my favorite ingredient for that aromatic flavor that makes the cookies sing. Sure, you can use whatever vanilla you have on hand, but if you can, go for the pure stuff.
  • Large Egg: The trusty binder that holds all this goodness together.
  • Bisquick Mix: The main ingredient! Making our baking lives easier by bundling the flour and leavening agents together. It’s what gives these cookies their soft, tender texture.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: Of course, we’re not skimping on chocolate chips – feel free to get generous with these babies. After all, is there such a thing as too many chocolate chips? I think not.

How to make Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step 1: Mix The Dough

  1. Add butter and brown sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer.
  2. Mix until smooth. Then, blend in the vanilla extract and egg. Remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate all ingredients evenly.
  3. Lower the speed and gradually add in the Bisquick mix.
  4. Mix until it forms a consistent dough. Scrape the sides of the bowl again, and add the chocolate chips.
  5. Gently fold them into the dough until they’re evenly distributed.

Step 2: Shape And Bake The Cookies

  1. With a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop out balls of dough and place them on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart to allow for spreading.
  2. Bake in the oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are a light golden brown, and the centers are set but not wet-looking. Once baked, remove them from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a minute before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Chocolate Galore: Semi-sweet chips are classic, but why not jazz it up? Try tossing in white, milk, or dark chocolate chips – or hey, go wild and use a mix of all three!
  • Caramel Sea Salt: Imagine gooey caramel and a sprinkle of sea salt on top of your Bisquick cookies after they hit the oven. It’s that sweet meets salty vibe that’ll have everyone coming back for just one more… Or maybe two.
  • Gluten-Free Goodness: Swap out the regular Bisquick for the gluten-free version, and boom, you’ve got cookies that everyone can dive into.
  • Nuts for Nuts: Throw in some finely chopped nuts – pecans, walnuts, almonds, you name it. It adds an oh-so-satisfying crunch!
  • Flavor Twist: Vanilla’s great, but let’s not stop there. Experiment with almond, peppermint, or orange extract to give your cookies a little zing. Just a dash can make a world of difference.

Tips for making the best Bisquick chocolate cookies

  1. Use Room Temp Ingredients: Make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature before you start. But watch out – you’re not looking for melted butter here! Room temp ingredients blend more smoothly, leading to a smooth dough.
  2. Keep it Gentle on the Mixing: When you’re adding the Bisquick mix into your wet ingredients, remember it’s not a race. Overmixing the dough can lead to tough cookies, and not in a good way. Mix just until you see no more dry mix, and then, hands off!
  3. Measure Like a Pro: Getting the right amount of Bisquick mix is crucial. Too much, and you’re looking at cookies that could double as hockey pucks. Spoon the mix into your measuring cup and level it off with the back of a knife for the perfect measure.
  4. Chill the Dough: If you’ve got time, let your dough chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes before baking. This helps control the spread of your cookies, leading to a thicker, chewier delight.

How to store Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

After your cookies have cooled off completely, simply slide them into an airtight container and keep them at room temp. If you want to keep them extra soft, sneak a slice of bread in there with them. The cookies will grab the moisture from the bread, staying soft and chewy.

How long will Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies last?

On the counter, your cookies will stay fresh and tasty for up to a week. Just make sure they’re hidden well enough so they don’t all disappear in a single afternoon!

Can I freeze Bisquick cookies?

For sure! Place the cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet to freeze them individually, then transfer them to a freezer bag. They’ll keep like this for up to 3 months, ready to be enjoyed at a moment’s notice.

Oh, and for the dough – scoop it onto a baking sheet, freeze the scoops, then bag them up. They’ll keep for 3 months as well. You can bake straight from frozen, just add a couple extra minutes to the oven time.

What to serve with Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • The Classic Duo: Is there anything more iconic than chocolate chip cookies served with a cold, tall glass of milk? It’s the perfect match. Whether it’s a late-night snack or a treat for the kiddos, it never disappoints.
  • Warm Drinks: If you’re curling up with a book or settling in for a movie night, pair these cookies with a hot cup of your fave coffee, tea, or a mug of hot cocoa.
  • Cookie Gift: Planning a reunion or attending one? Gift these Bisquick chocolate cookies alongside other homemade treats like lemon meltaway cookies, oatmeal cookies, or peanut butter cookies.
  • Brownie Batter Dip: For a truly indulgent dessert, serve your cookies with my brownie batter dip. The combination of soft cookies and rich, chocolaty dip is irresistible! Perfect for parties, movie nights, or when you’re just feeling a little extra

Frequently asked questions

Can I make these cookies without a stand mixer?

You sure can! While a stand mixer makes creaming butter and sugar a breeze, you can def get the job done with a good old-fashioned bowl, a whisk, and a wooden spoon. It’ll give you a mini workout, but the result will be just as tasty.

My cookies over spread. What happened?

A couple of things might be at play. First, check if your butter was too soft or melted. This can cause cookies to spread more than desired. Also, make sure not to over-grease your baking sheet, which can also lead to extra spread.

How do I know when the cookies are perfectly baked?

Look for the edges to turn a light golden brown and the centers to set but not look wet. Everyone’s oven is a bit different, so start checking around the 10-minute mark. Remember, they’ll continue to cook a bit on the baking sheet after you pull them out of the oven, so if they look a tad underdone in the center, they might just be perfect by the time they cool.

I’ve found that baking isn’t just about the delicious treats you end up with (although that’s a pretty big perk), it’s about the fun of creating something from scratch, the warmth of sharing it with loved ones, and the joy of a kitchen filled with the aroma of freshly baked cookies. These Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies have become a go-to in my home for just those reasons – they’re easy, they’re scrumptious, and they bring everyone to the kitchen, eager for a taste!
