Basic Cookie Mix

Hi Everyone!

It’s day 4 of my 7 Cookies in 7 Days series. Today’s installment is a 2-parter. I’m sharing a basic cookie mix recipe as well as one of the recipes that can be made with it. I’ll also be sharing a recipe that goes with the mix each day for the next 3 days.

The basic cookie mix makes about 16 cups of mix and each recipe calls for 3-3 1/2 cups mix. Keep it in an airtight container in a cool place (like a cabinet) for around 10 weeks.

It’s always nice to have this on hand to whip up a batch of cookies in no time!

Don’t forget to look for the separate recipe coming today and the other recipes for the next 3 days!

Until tomorrow…

Happy Cooking!
