Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, mix cookie mix, butter, and egg with spoon until soft dough forms. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread dough using floured fingers evenly in pan.
  3. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 1 hour. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Recipe Tips

  • To soften butter, cut in small pieces and leave at room temperature. A faster method is to microwave butter in 5 second intervals turning the butter frequently so butter is softened but not melted.
  • Try your favorite flavored Oreo™ cookie for a new flavor twist!
  • If using 20% more cookie mix (21 oz size pouch), add 1 tablespoon water to cookie mix, butter and egg.
