Got a request from my husband today for Chocolate Chip cookies. this is one of the 257 I have in my recipe box! (give or take a few). It is super simple, uses a cake mix, eggs, oil, water, flour and chocolate chips. I added a little extra flour because the dough was a little sticky and I prefer my cookies to come out puffy and use the flour to stiffen the dough so I can pile it high to keep it from spreading too much. I used a yellow cake mix today, but you can use any flavor you want and any chips that you want (think chocolate cake mix and peanut butter chips). These are super simple and look great!
and here’s another tip I found with my oven (shout out to Stanley, the tech who helped me realize why our new stove was not cooking and baking properly).. to preheat your oven properly, set your oven temp and hit start… then start your timer for 20 minutes. when that timer goes off, your oven will be at the right temperature. something about cycling and increasing and decreasing temperature. if you follow that, your baked goods will cook more evenly
- 1 cake mix
- 1/2 cup oil
- 2 eggs
- 2-4 tbs flour
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Combine cake mix, flour, oil and eggs. Plenty in chips. Maybe add a little more flour to make dough easier to handle. Using a cookie scoop (about 1/4 cup of dough), scoop out door and form into high piles. Let chill at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350. Scatter on a baking sheet lined with nonstick baking liners. Bake 10-15 minutes. There will be golden spots on top and bottom will be lightly browned. Cool completely.
Store in covered container.
