Leslie had a bag of Betty Crocker Cookie Mix which purports to produce homemade cookies in 20 Minutes!
I think it may have taken us a bit longer than that.... but that is probably because we played doctor with a mallet half way through the cookie making process.
There are three simple steps to yummy cookies:
Step one: heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir softened* butter (1 stick = 1/2 cup) and 1 egg in a medium bowl. Stir in cookie mix gradually.
*to soften cold butter, microwave unwrapped stick on High 10 seconds.
Step three: bake about 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet. Cool completely on paper towels (it absorbs some of the excess grease). Place on a plate and serve :)
