sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups
dry milk powder
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
I love ot have this mix in the cupboard. I have made this as gifts and include chcolate chips , nuts, sprinkles, dried cherries, cranberries. What a welcome smell to come home to when it is so easy to whip up a batch of homemade cookies
This is convenient, but not very tasty. The powdered milk is nutritious, but gives it an odd flavor. I tried several variations, and ended up adding things every time to make the texture right. I would rather use an individual recipe that I know will work. This might be good for beginning cooks or kids who like to cook and aren't real picky about the results.
I decided that since I had all the ingredients for this mix that I would give it a whirl. It only took a few minutes to throw it together. I've tried some of the recipes that go with it and I love it. It is incredibly convenient. I can make a batch of cookies faster than I can tear open a bag. :)
the really good thing about this recipe, is that you really cant mess it up, i made a huge mistake while using it, and my cookies turned out fine.
I love this stuff.
We keep it on hand to make cookies at the drop of a hat.
I made some homemade PB with my PB maker, it was dry, so I thought I would make PB cookies. I loved this recipe, a little skeptical at first because it didn't call for brown sugar. I did add an extra egg because my batter was on the dry side. I know this doesn't always work, but it did for me. It turned out awesome. Baked them for 8 minutes, kids gobbled them up. Will be trying all the rest of the BCM recipes that are provided. Good job!
Pros: easy & handy! Cons: too high of a sugar to flour ratio? I made the choc chip & coconut ones so far, and they were candy like in terms of sugary taste. Not bad if you like that, but many cookie recipes have less sugar than flour so next time if I make this I will reduce the sugar by a cup. The bad side of doing that is I might just be left with enough for 3.5 batches of cookies instead of 4. Also, I think the sifting step might really help to thoroughly mix the ingredients, I wonder if people have had different results because of unevenly mixed ingredients? (For example, too much baking powder clumped in one of the cups taken or or not enough, etc.?)
Good for gift-giving. I've only made the brownies from this recipe...but I can only eat them with tons of frosting...otherwise, they aren't very good.
