Master Cookie Dry Mix & Cookie Recipes


My friend Judi Strauss of The Charmed Kitchen came up with a wonderful Master Cookie Dry Mix that adapts to many different kinds of cookie dough recipes. She has designed 7 different types of cookies from this master mix; Chocolate Chip Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies, Butter Cookies, Gingersnaps, Orange Raisin Cookies, Snickerdoodles, and Oatmeal Cookies. You can grab any of these flavor variations over on her website at http://thecharmedkitchen.com/2015/04/13/master-cookie-mix/.

I just had to play with the master mix and test a couple of flavors myself. Below are 3 more recipes for cookies I have made. Small batch cookies mixes usually contain 12 to 18 cookies. Since there have been requests for small batch sizes, I have also included the breakdown. Just follow the second grouping of each ingredient listing.

These make GREAT homemade gift basket items and everyone loves receiving them. Remember, you can make pantry packs of these cookie recipes and have them ready to go with directions. My son loves pulling one out, mixing it up, and popping them into the toaster oven. I love it because this does not heat up the house and he can have his cookie fix within 15 minutes. For directions on putting together Homemade Convenience Mixes, see our article here: 5 Steps to Creating a Homemade Convenience Mix.
