Reviews for Quick Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
"What is the best shortening to use? I don't like a flat cookie!"
"I've always had a hard time with chocolate chip cookies. These turn out perfect every time. And there have been a lot of times. :)"
"This is the only chocolate chip cookie I ever make now. I made it when I first saw it in the magazine. Everybody loves it. I have gone so far as to not make the mix and just make a double batch of cookies if making a lot of cookies...although I do like the convenience of having the mix on hand."
