These cookies are very easy to make and addictive! This recipe is from a friend who made them without a recipe until we begged her to measure and write everything down. According to the Weight Watchers recipe builder, these are 2 points per cookie when I use "Heart Healthy" Bisquick. (Changing the sugar to Splenda does not lower the points.)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix the first two ingredients.
- Add the Bisquick and chocolate chips. If the dough is very sticky, add a little more Bisquick.
- Roll the dough into balls.
- Roll the balls in sugar.
- Place the balls on a baking sheet and flatten them with a fork.
- Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes. They should be light brown when they are finished.
These cookies remind me of cake mix cookies by the dough consistency and the fact that the chocolate chips don't want to stay incorporated and fall out easily. I found that shaping the dough into balls rather than rolling into balls was easier. I only used 1 cup of chips (6 oz) and that was plenty. They also don't spread much. These cookies aren't bad but they definitely have a "pre-packaged mix" taste to them and are lacking the made from scratch flavor and taste. I could detect the salty taste of baking soda from the baking mix - familiar to eating a biscuit. Suitable cookies to make if you don't have much time and need to throw something together for a last minute bake sale or potluck.
Wonderful!! I followed the recipe exactly but I had to use more than 1/4 cup sugar for rolling the cookie balls. I made them for hubby's work and they want the recipe. I knew they'd like them after I test-tasted them. Mad for PAC Spring 2012.
Wow! Talk about a good PB cookie. I love the texture and flavor. I didn't use fat-free items when I made these. So easy and very good. Thanks for sharing, this is a keeper.
