Ingredients

1/2
cup salted butter, softened
1
cup packed light brown sugar
2
teaspoons vanilla
1
egg
2
teaspoons red gel or liquid food color (use 2 1/2 teaspoons if needed)
1 3/4
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
1/4
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1
cup white vanilla baking chips (add 1/2 cup more if desired)
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with silicone baking mats or cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla, egg and food color. Add Bisquick mix and baking cocoa; beat on low speed until combined. Stir in chips.
  • 3 Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  • 4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes, but no longer than 10 minutes (mine were perfect at 8 minutes). The cookies will look underdone, but this is what you want. Cool on cookie sheets 5 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.

Expert Tips

Store cookies in sealed container for up to 4 days.

If you do not like white chips, try subbing dark chocolate, milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips.

For a fun Valentine's Day cookie, make the cookies as directed, but use only 1/2 cup of chips. When the cookies come out of the oven, immediately press a chocolate heart right in the center of each cookie.
