Fake Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes!

Posted on 12/05/2012 by d00ditsemily

Hello, long time lurker here and beginner 'baker'! I'm terrible at baking and cooking in general, something always gets a little burnt or not how I imagined it would turn out. But yesterday in honor of National Cookie Day, I decided to bake some cookies with my toddler. Let me just say, these were the best cookies that I've made yet and they came out perfect!

I found this recipe on Fake it Frugal. You probably have all these ingredients already in your pantry.

Fake Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookies:

1 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips

Mix together and store in a quart size ziplock bag. Write instructions on the bag to add: 1 Stick Softened Butter, 1 Large Egg, 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract. Mix & Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes.

I baked mine for 11 minutes. When I took them out they were just starting to brown around the bottom edges of the cookie. When they cooled they were perfect and gooey. The missing cookie comes from a very eager two year old who loved them!

At Fake it Frugal she also has the recipes for the gingerbread cookie mix, oatmeal cookie mix and the sugar cookie mix (which I will definitely be using on Christmas Eve).

I'm not sure if it just went through mods since my computer just went crazy so sorry if I submitted it twice

It'd make a great gift, too... (unbaked).

I made these and they were super greasy and flat. I suggest using 1.5 cups of flour rather than 1 cup, and maybe cutting the brown sugar down to .25 cup.
