"I have been using this cookie mix for 5 years. To clarify some of the reviews. This recipe is just a cookie mix, you need to follow the links at the bottom of the recipe and it will take you to a recipe that includes the cookie mix as an ingredient. If you halve the recipe it will make 4 cups of cookie mix, the full recipe makes 8 cups. I usually make 2 batches of cookies from this mix at Christmas time. The Butter Almond Cookies, Toffee Triangles, and Apricot Thumbprints are my favorites. Check out my review of the Apricot Thumbprints to make it more flavorful."

"It seems a good idea at first and the cashew jelly thumbprints were ok. But there not enough other kinds of cookies you can make to make the whole thing worth while."
