I love buying the bags of cookie mix, where all I have to do is add eggs and oil and I have cookies. However, this is not cost effective and we home make everything else, why not our cookies. So, we decided to put together our own cookie mixes. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before, but when I made one for my Mom to go along with her Christmas present of a cookie scooper, I thought I needed to make some for our house too.
We made 5 chocolate chip cookie mixes and 5 sugar cookie mixes. I wrote on each of the gallon sized bags what you need to add to the mix to complete the cookie dough, as well as the oven temperature and how long to bake it for. Now when we want cookies, it isn’t as big of a process as it was before. However, I fear now we’ll be making cookies more often. Not so good for my waist line.
The Chocolate Chip Recipe that we used is from the Toll House Chocolate Chip bag (bought at Costco. Apparently the 5lb. bag of chocolate chips makes 5.5 batches of cookies. One recipe takes 2 cups of chips and there is only one cup of chips left.)
The Sugar Cookie Recipe that we used is:
Sugar Cookies (the Best Ever)
2 tsp. vanilla
4 tbsp milk
1tsp baking soda
Roll out 1/2 inch thick and bake at 350* for 8-10 minutes
