Tips For Making The Perfect Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies
There’s nothing more disappointing than cookies that don’t turn out delicious, so here are some of my best tips for getting the most out of your chocolate chip cookies recipe:
- Soften your butter. If you forgot to let your butter sit at room temp to soften up, you can use some of these tricks to speed the process. But you definitely want your butter soft so it incorporates evenly into your dough.
- Cream your butter and sugar. Properly mixing your butter and sugar at the start of any cookie recipe ensures that you have the right distribution of chemical reaction when you bake. Butter dissolves sugar, creates air bubbles, and mixing it with flour traps those air bubbles during baking, giving you signature cookie chew!
With simple ingredients like the ones found in our cookies, what could go wrong? I’m here to make sure nothing snags you on your quest for cookie perfection!
Bisquick: What, exactly, is in this mysterious yellow box? Bisquick originated in the 1930s as the first store-bought baked goods dry mix. It predates even cake mixes!
The original inspiration came from a train’s chef who had his own biscuit dry mix to help speed along the baking process. You can thank hungry train goers for this invention!
Butter: This cookies calls for butter, and rightfully so! I know a lot of people swap margarine for the butter, but I really don’t recommend that. Butter contains the right amount of fat to give your baked goods that signature texture, while margarine tends to have more water, which will make your treats fall flat.
Plus, butter ups the flavor factor-like woah. No margarine can match it!
Chocolate: I use semisweet chocolate chips for this, which is closer to dark chocolate than milk on the cocoa scale. But you can use whichever type of chocolate you like best! Milk, dark, even white would all be delicious.
Do the cookies from this recipe store differently than other cookies? I’m here to tell you!
Can You Freeze This?
Yes! Once cooled, put your cookies in an airtight container, and they’ll freeze perfectly for up to 6-12 months. Though I really don’t know any cookies that sit around for that long. I for one love frozen cookies even more than room temp — I gobble them down within the week!
Make Ahead Tips
Cookie dough comes together rather quickly once you start, but there is one trick that can speed along your cookies recipe: making the dough ahead of time and refrigerating it.
How Long Can You Keep This?
A day, if I get my hands on these cookies! Kidding — I do not recommend eating all these cookies in one day!
The best thing about cookies like those in this cookie is that you can suit any craving with a few simple ingredient changes. Let’s see what fun variations we can make!
Can I Add Oats?
Oats in cookies are basically breakfast which is healthy so you go ahead and add oats to make a Bisquick cookies oatmeal healthy breakfast snack! Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are divine and give you a good chew while peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are as much fun to say as they are to eat.
If you want something really hearty, go for good ol’ down-home cowboy cookies!
Can I Add Some Fruits?
Fruit in cookies is one of life’s greatest pleasures! I adore the tart-citrus combination of cranberry orange cookies. If you liked the oat addition, you must try oatmeal raisin cookies (a classic!) or the tender version, soft oatmeal raisin cookies.
Can I Add Peanut Butter?
Turning this recipe into a Bisquick cookies peanut butter magic concoction? Um, YES PLEASE! Anything reminiscent of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies is divine.
Can I Make A Cake With My Leftover Bisquick?
Yes! The original use for Bisquick was to make quick baked goods like Bisquick coffee cake or the super-soft Bisquick strawberry shortcake. Experiment! There are loads you can do with Bisquick.
Can I Make A Cobbler With My Leftover Bisquick?
Topping off your fruity casserole with tender, flaky Bisquick biscuits? Yum! Bisquick peach cobbler gives you that perfect combination of hearty stone fruit with buttery biscuits, and Bisquick blueberry cobbler brings a bright pop of berry goodness!
