These were so yummy! Really soft and chewy...and easy to make! I made them simply because my husband and I had bought a box of Jiffy mix a while back thinking we needed it. It had just been sitting in the pantry, and the other night I though about that and looked on the back of the box to see what I could make.
Being the cookie monster that I am, of course the cookie recipe stood out to me right away! Above you can see that I am not the best at making cookies very uniform like. :'( Maybe I should invest in one of those miniature ice-cream scoop looking things? I think that would be a wise idea...
Listen to just how simple this recipe is from the back of the Jiffy all purpose baking mix box...
- 2 cups Jiffy baking mix
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 5 Tbsp. margarine or butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Grease baking sheet
Combine all ingredients until blended
Drop by tablespoon on to prepared baking sheet
Bake 8 to 10 minutes (mine were more like 13 to 15! ...my husband likes some to be more crunchy though)
Remove from sheet and sprinkle with sugar.
*I really would recommend trying to get them all on one sheet or at least in the oven at the same time right away. The longer my batter sat the uglier the cookies turned out (like with bubbles in them). But I really didn't have a choice because of my little baby oven. It can only fit the small pan. :)
Too easy not to try right? As long as you have the Jiffy mix that is. I was also thinking they might be good with lemon extract? Mainly because I have quite the extract collection going on right now, but I only ever seem to use vanilla. I'm not sure if you would use the same amount, or less, or more... hmm ...if you know please tell me!
I hope you bake some and enjoy them as much as I did!
