Chocolate Chip Pancake Cookies

Jeremy came home from visiting his dad one Sunday, and told me he'd had a vision of brilliance while there: they'd started playing with pancake batter, scrambling it, baking it ... let's just say they were experimenting.

But Jeremy wanted to refine this creative burst, so he asked me to buy some pancake mix and to help him with a baking project.

Okay ...?

Well, I'm always up for an adventure in the kitchen! So Jeremy wrote down the required ingredients and an estimate of measurements, and we mixed and stirred and tasted and tinkered until we came up with a lovely cookie batter. We dropped the batter onto a baking sheet, baked the cookies, and ... voilà! Lovely, tender, light, delicious chocolate chip cookies with a hint of maple syrup-drenched pancake aura infused into them!

An easy shortcut for a quick fix when you've got a craving ... :)

Chocolate Chip Pancake Cookies

3 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
pinch of kosher salt
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1 egg
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

In a large mixing bowl, combine Biscuick, milk, sugar, and salt. Stir together maple syrup and egg; add to dry ingredients and combine. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop batter by the tablespoon onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies are puffed and lightly golden at the edges, and the house smells a bit like pancakes. Remove to a rack and cool completely.

Makes 30 cookies.
