I put this pin test on my schedule before the other member of my household went on a paleo diet kick. I’m pretty sure cavemen didn’t have Bisquick, but I’m making these damn cookies anyway.
These cookies are supposed to be big and fluffy and easy — just like me. Haaa.
Anyway, I also happened to have the ingredients around. We won’t talk about how my brown sugar was a little fossilized and my Bisquick was past the expiration date… by like a year…
(And, yes, that’s an entire stick of butter.) But let’s be honest, folks. I’ve cooked with way worse ingredients than brown sugar and Bisquick that are just a little too old.
Besides, mixing the brown sugar with the other stuff mostly took care of any crusty bits.
I had to moosh out a few lumps, but you know. That’s how the cookie… uh… gets mooshed, right?
Then it was time to add Bisquick and chocolate chips. And nuts if you want, but I like my cookies nutless — just like me. Haaa.
It made a dough that looked a little dry to me, but hey, who am I to judge? I’m not exactly a cookie expert or anything.
… Unless eating lots of cookies makes me an expert, because then I’m pretty sure I qualify as a cookie Olympian.
Here’s a bad thing about this recipe: There are leftover chocolate chips and brown sugar. Fuuuuuuuck. Guess what I’m having for lunch next time I wake up with PMS.
Now before I give you the verdict on the cookies themselves, let me give you some points about this recipe that I find a little bit distressing:
- You have to be willing to eat (or do something with) approximately a fucktillion cookies, because that’s how many this recipe makes. No problem for me, but I’m just sayin’.
- As mentioned above, there will be leftover chocolate chips. Not distressing unless shark week is on its way.
- As with all chocolate chip cookie recipes, you cannot just assume that each cookie sheet of cookies will require the same amount of baking time (at least in my crap-ass oven), so if you want them to all be uniform, you have to stand there and keep checking the golden-brown-ness of them. That was kind of ok with me because I just played many rounds of Candy Crush in between checking.
- An entire stick of butter. I try not to think about it.
So, with all those caveats in mind, I will tell you that I thought these things were pretty delicious. In my case, they were better than my standard chocolate chip cookie recipe, probably because the Bisquick took some of the precision aspect out of it. The precision aspect is the major reason I suck at baking. The secondary reason is mostly that I am a spaz.
So, bake away my lovlies, as long as you’re willing to eat a fucktillion cookies with a stick of butter in the recipe and then ravage half a bag of chocolate chips next week before Aunt Flo stops by.
