Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just a Quick Update on the Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies: So I had made quite a Lot of these cookies and had about a dozen left over so I brought them into my work (Chilis Bar and Grill) and they were gone in like umm... 1 minute. I put them on the counter back on the Expo line and BAM, gone! Everyone LOVED them. They Had no idea that they were "Bisquick" cookies until I told I them, of course. I love Bisquick so I was proud to say that they were Bisquick cookies (: Makes me like em even MORE! Click HERE for Recipe.

 Update number 2: So I had made these again this morning because everyone at my work was begging! and i refrigerated the dough for about an hour before baking them and this time they turned out more puffy. I was stoked because this is how I initially wanted them to be. And they tasted marvelous (same taste as 1st time) Everyone at my work, once again, devoured them within seconds! Bisquick is making me so popular LOL!! J/K, I'm not that desperate. Click HERE for Recipe

GF Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

bisquick cookies


My dad has had a gluten allergy for the last 18 years so basically all growing up, my mom was always making gluten free meals and gluten free desserts. She would never make a non gluten free meal or dessert for the rest of us. Everything was always just only gluten free so that she wouldn't have to cook twice. Early into it I started totally resenting gluten free anything and would purposefully avoid gluten free food just because it made me upset. Even things that were naturally gluten free, like a rice casserole or Rice Kirspy Treats. But ya, it's the Gluten free flour blends that have grossed me out the most. This is why I just Love regular bready pizzas and macaroni and cheese with regular floury noodles. No way did we ever get homemade bread. That would just make my dad too jealous. So ya, frustrating times!! Anyway, every now and then Im nice and I'll whip something up for my dad thats GF. I wanted to make Bisquick chocolate chip cookies because we had regular Bisquick in our pantry but we had GF Bisquick as well so I decided to make both especially since Biquick recipes don't take very long. The Top Photo Is Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free) and the bottom photo is Bisquick CHocolate Chip Cookies (Regular-not gluten free) The Gluten Free cookies turned out a lot puffier (obviously.) I was surprised at the taste of the cookies. Thought that using Bisquick would make for a somewhat less tasty chocolate chip cookie, but I was totally wrong. These cookies are VERY good. The texture is slightly chewier than your average cookie, and I absolutely Love that! I will definitely be making them again.
