Product Review: King Arthur Flour Cookie Mix – brown sugar cookie base

Posted on | May 14, 2012 | No Comments

I am really excited about this gluten free cookie mix from King Arthur Flour! It is one that has become a favorite in my home with both the gluten eating and gluten free consumers- many of which are kids that can’t tell the difference. This mix makes a gluten free cookie that tastes like Nestle toll house cookies. I have to warn you- buy at your own risk. They can be addicting!

I usually find this mix on sale at my local Harmon’s grocery store for $3.99 – $4.99, or I purchase it in bulk on amazon with my amazon prime shipping subscription.  Each mix makes around two dozen medium cookies.

To prepare this mix, I added  1/2 c. butter, an egg and 2 tbsp. water.  To make these cookies dairy free as well, I added Earth Balance spread and usde Enjoy Life Foods dairy free chocolate chips
.  With this mix, you can add up to three cups of add-ins. I tested this mix with coconut, peanut butter chips, mini m&ms, chocolate chips and a variety nuts, all with tasty results.

For soft, gooey cookies I baked them for eight to nine minutes in a 350 degree oven and let them cool on the cookie sheet. For crisp cookies, I baked them for 10-11 minutes.  I loved that these cookies weren’t grainy or crumbly, like so many gluten free cookies can be.  They tasted just like I remember “regular” gluten cookies tasted like.  They have a sweet brown sugar flavor to them, but it isn’t too sugary ,and I didn’t detect any type of aftertaste.

I often whip up a batch to give to neighbors and friends, and they have no clue they are gluten free, and dairy free as well. It’s nice to have a prepackaged cookie base to create from, rather than from scratch.  Sadly, my baking results are inconsistent when baking from scratch, and when I use this mix I know they will turn out well. Overall, I really like this mix and always have a few mixes stocked in my pantry.
