cookies in a jiffy
Who couldn't use a speedy cookie recipe that tastes fantastic?! My daughter and her friend made dinner last night- grilled barbeque chicken, potato wedges, corn and these cookies that they made using Jiffy baking mix. The recipe called for chocolate chips but they used what they found in the cupboard- M&M's and the rest of a bag of chocolate chips, numbering about 10 or 12. They are buttery and have just-the-right amount of chewiness. I have a feeling these will become a regular at our house.
cookies in a jiffy (recipe from Betty Crocker)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups Jiffy Baking Mix (original recipe calls for Bisquick Heart Smart mix)
1 cup add-ins like chocolate chips or M&M's or both!
Heat oven to 350. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg. Add Jiffy 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.
