I’m not always a fan of cookie mixes. After learning to make things from scratch, I’m a lot pickier about the quality of the mixes I use. However, I decided to review the mix I had on my counter for a quick batch of chocolate chip cookies.
Allergy-Related Information: Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Dairy-Free
Pros: I like the appearance! They cooked up well, browned to a perfect tint, and rose as they should.
Cons: They definitely would have had to be small cookies though in order to get 3 dozen! I got about 2 dozen, and they weren’t huge cookies (1 1/2-2″ diameter).
Pros: I was impressed with the taste of these cookies. Often plain cookie mixes have a slight after-taste to them (like Bob’s Red Mill), so I was wary of this. In fact, I started planning baking other goodies as well, so sure that these would be edible but not enjoyable. I was wrong! They tasted great! The cookie mix was sweet but not overpowering and was a great base for adding all sorts of goodies. Of course, I used chocolate chips, but I’m sure these would have been just as great if they were combined with butterscotch, or nuts and fruit.
Cons: No cons here!
Pros: I was afraid this mix would be grainy and nasty. They weren’t! I liked the batter, and I liked the cookie! Adam inhaled them and didn’t notice they weren’t a mix or anything new/different than the chocolate chip cookies I make from scratch! That says something!
Cons: None!….Great job!
What I Love
I love the versatility of this cookie mix! I could mix anything into these cookies, and the mix itself would be a perfect base!
What I’d Improve
I would have liked the nutritional value on the side of the box to demonstrate what the whole cookie would be (without add-ins, of course). I felt that was a little misleading. The order of ingredients was also out of order on the back of the box, and that is confusing.
Overall Rating: B
