"Not So Rebellious" Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies

So, I'm visiting my very dear and very lovely friend Leslie in Brooklyn this weekend.  After a fun-filled day of city walking and costume hunting... Leslie, Lauren, and Jose undertook the feat of a lifetime: making cookies from a bag.  Okay, agreed it's not so rebellious.  But baking is baking, and I have to say we produced some tasty treats for us and her roommate to enjoy.

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 two: drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.

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 :)
