Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Bisquick

I bought a box of Bisquick a few months ago so I that I could make some Impossible Pies.  I’d planned on making the taco kind, which is one of the first things I learned to make as a kid, but I never got around to it and ended up just making an Impossible Cheesecake.  Long story short, I’m still trying to use up the box and figured it was finally time to see how Bisquick tasted in chocolate chip cookies.  The verdict? Better than expected! They do have kind of a tangy aftertaste which either comes from the baking powder in the mix or some sort of artificial buttermilk flavoring, but I will admit that I liked them.  The texture was awesome and I liked that they weren’t too sweet. So if you have some biscuit mix in the pantry and are trying to use it up, give the cookies a try and let me know what you think.  If you have the Heart Healthy Bisquick, Betty Crocker has an updated version of the recipe which is probably better for you; but I made mine with old school “regular” Bisquick which is probably why they look different.

Layered Chocolate Dessert

Layered Chocolate Dessert

It’s descriptive, but not very exciting, so I had to laugh a little when I saw that it had resurfaced on Pinterest as “Chocolate Lasagna”. Way to get attention! I like it. And wouldn’t it be fun to serve it on lasagna night […]

Sweet Potato Quick Bread

Fall can’t get here fast enough, so I decided to hurry it along by baking this spicy quick bread. Made with sweet potatoes, this is very much like pumpkin bread, but with a slightly different flavor and light texture.  You might like it even if you’re not a sweet potato fan.  I sure did! If […]

Crème Brulee for Two

Creme Brulee

A friend of ours who is coming to dinner requested Crème Brulee for dessert, so naturally I had to practice.  Not that it requires much practice because it’s actually very simple, but I wanted to run a test and see which was better — Alton Brown’s version or the one from Cook’s Illustrated.  I decided to […]
