Betty Crocker's Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

As you know, I enjoy cooking and baking—though I admit I'm a little more skilled in cooking, rather than baking—and it's no mystery I've used baking mixes before (there is absolutely nothing wrong with that). I bought Betty Crocker's Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix a couple of weeks ago and this past weekend, since I was in baking mood, I decided to give it a try.

The first thing to be said is that the cookie mix is much more easy than the other cake mixes, as you only need a little bit of water to mix it up (the instructions on the back of the packet are very clear and easy). 

Pre-heat your oven to 190C (374F). Put the mix into a medium-sized bowl, throw in two tablespoons of water and combine everything into a kinda sticky dough. Take a piece of dough and roll it between your palms to form a ball, and put it on your baking sheet or baking tray (if your sheet/tray is not non-stick, just use some parchment paper (baking paper). Now... the packet makes 8 cookies, so divide accordingly. I used the two batches and made smaller balls so I ended up with 20 cookies.
Put the tray in the oven and leave it for 10-12 minutes, or until your cookies are golden brown. 

This is the result, what do you all think? I had some issues with the timing, as when I took the tray out of the oven after 12 minutes the cookies seemed still a bit raw. I put them back for five more minutes, but I suppose two would have sufficed as they were a bit too crunchy for my taste. 

No, I didn't burn them, haha, very funny. 
The household obviously loved them, but I'm always very critical about my cooking, so I would've preferred them a tinsy bit softer. Nevertheless, they were very good!

Have you tried one of Betty Crocker's mixes? How well did you do? Share your story in the comments!
