Homemade Cookie Mix and Boxes

I didn’t think cookies made with homemade cookie mix would be this great, but I’m quite happy with the 1001 Cookie Starter Mix. Just look at these chocolate chips cookies.  F

Chocolate Chip Cookies

These were made with the homemade mix I told you about yesterday (congratulations to Mary, btw, for winning the giveaway). First you make the mix, then you scroll down to Domino’s list of recipes for cookies made with the mix.

Recipes Using Homemade Cookie Mix

It makes baking multiple types of cookies more convenient, plus it also makes a great gift.   For the little gift box above, I measured out 3 cups of mix (18 oz), put it in a cellophane bag, stuffed it in a box, then decorated the sides of the box with recipes from Domino’s recipe collection — specifically, the ones that use the mix.   Hopefully they’ll make their goal of actually having 1001.

Also, thanks to a reader I have found a good source for boxes. You may already know about this, but if not check out Brown River Packaging. They have the 4x4x4 boxes (as pictured above) priced at 100 boxes for $23.45, plus just about any type of box you could imagine. And they’ll send you samples. I just put in an order and will let you know how it goes. Ground shipping in the 48 lower US states is free.

    I just posted about this starter mix last week as well. It’s pretty good. I need to use up the rest of mine today, I think. (Just because I just gave away all the goodies I’ve been making and there are none left in the house.) 😉
    I made some chewy gingerbread biscotti with it. I need to get on there and submit them to the FB contest.
