RECIPE: Cheater Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Sometimes we domestic divas need some shortcuts. We do a lot, and when we add kids to our daily mix of doing, there are always curve ball requests that show up at...oh...say...1 hour before bedtime? You know, the "Mom, by the way, I volunteered you for cookies for the bake sale tomorrow, because you are such a good baker" request?

Yeah. That.

So. For that. I made up this.
You're welcome, fellow moms.

Cheater Cinnamon Chip Cookies


1 package Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, snack size
1/2 stick butter, softened to room temp.
2 Tbsp. water
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup cinnamon chips


Preheat oven to 375˚ (if you are using dark or nonstick sheets, preheat oven to 350˚) In a large bowl, whip your softened butter with a fork. Add the cookie mix and cinnamon, and mix and mash the butter with the fork until the texture of cornmeal. Add the vanilla extract and water, and mash with the fork until a batter forms.

Gently add the cinnamon chips, until evenly combined. Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake for about 7-10 minutes, or until edges become golden and cookies are set. Let the cookies cool on the sheets or about 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
