Reviews for Spicy Oatmeal Cookie Mix
"OMG, I made these but used dried cranberries instead of chocolate chips. My boyfriend ate all 12 of them in 1 day. I only got 1 :-)"
"Have given this as a gift many times. Use cinnamon chips instead of chocolate & no coconut, much better. Can make into bars as well as cookies. Everyone loves them."
"I was given these as a gift in the jar so I followed the recipe and added the egg, butter and vanilla. When all mixed up the batter was too dry and crumbly to drop by spoonfuls. Anyone else run into this? I am assuming the gifter used the correct amount of dry ingredients as she is a great cook. I think I will add a bit of milk to wet the batter, but I would like to know if this is unique to me. I was going to make some jars of this for gifts as well."
"Someone gave the cookie mix to me as a Christmas gift. It was so delicious that I had to go online and hunt down the full recipe. I will definitely make this again."
"fantastic... great hostess gift for people that don't like alcohol!"
