I use a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop and you can make larger cookies if you like. This will approximately make 32 cookies.

4.  Bake at 350 degrees.  For softer cookies bake for 6-8 minutes, for crispier cookies bake 10-12 minutes.

My aunt always said lightly drop the pan onto the counter to help the cookies set. Then let them cool completely before trying to remove them from the tray.

Additional Options:

  • Add marshmallows
  • White chocolate chips
  • Vanilla extract or almond extract
  • Serve warm with ice cream to make a special dessert 
  • Dust with some powdered sugar
  • use butter instead of oil
  • add a pinch of salt

Other notes:

  • Edible Cookie Dough – be careful as bacteria can grow on the dough. Make sure to keep it in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • Consuming raw cookie dough with raw eggs is not usually recommended
  • You can roll the dough into cookie dough balls like mom used to do, and place them on a prepared baking sheet for cooking instead of using the tool I recommended, then place them in the oven.
  • You can use a mixer instead of stirring the batter by hand.
  • You can use a regular cake mix and add a cup rainbow sprinkles
  • If you don’t want cookies, turn them into cupcakes instead
  • Using the cake mix is easy, you could make your own and include all of the ingredients like baking soda, brown sugar, raw flour, baking powder, unsalted butter, etc. I like making this recipe easier by using the cake mix. No need to measure, just mix and go.
