CAPSULE REPORT: Hosting a party and pressed for time? Here’s a quick and easy dessert solution: Use pre-made cookie or baking mixes as a dessert base. We know—the last thing you want to do is serve packaged cookies at your party. However, store-bought mixes can save you a lot of time and can be transformed into delicious, interesting desserts with little fuss—perfect for a dinner party when you’re in a hurry. We tried a variety of cookies made from Betty Crocker cookie mixes and Bisquick baking mix. Our favorites were the raspberry ribbon slices and the cranberry-macadamia bars (though bear in mind that both are very sweet!). The best part is that these treats can be prepared and baked in about a half hour, so they’re perfect for those times when you’re in a rush and don’t have the time to bake from scratch. Here, we present eight delicious and creative recipes. You can find more at Betty Crocker’s website. This is Page 1 of an 8-page article. Click the black links below to view the other recipes.
Choco-Cherry Double Delights
Adding macadamia nuts and maraschino cherries to chocolate cookie mix creates a soft yet textured chocolate delight. For extra intense flavor, add additional chocolate chips or chunks in your flavor choice (mint or white will look especially festive!).
- 1-1/3 cups whole maraschino cherries, well drained
- 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) double chocolate chunk cookie mix
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
- 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
- Heat oven to 375°F. Cut 15 of the maraschino cherries in half; set aside for topping cookies. Chop
remaining maraschino cherries.
- In large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in chopped cherries and nuts.
- Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Press one cherry half lightly
into center of each cookie.
- Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely,
about 15 minutes.
