….about The To Die For Gluten Free Cookie Review

*Hodgson Mill: Gluten Free Cookie Mix*
Well, let me tell you… This cookie mix will be a staple in my home. One of my favorite cookies are peanut butter cookies. I don’t care if they are plain, like the ones I made this time, have chocolate in or on them… I love peanut butter cookies (just don’t add anything weird like raisins eiw!!!! And don’t over cook them either.)! This is a basic mix so, of course, what kind did I make?? Peanut Butter!
To continue with my adding and trying more Gluten Free varieties I decided to make these cookies. I figure now is a good time to try out some more desert-y (Is that even a word?) type things. The air is getting that familiar cozy chill again and the holidays are coming up. I do not want to be sitting there listening to the cookie tray whisper to me without a super delicious Gluten Free version in my hand! Then I can say “Ha! I got me something better!” Turn my head, get up and walk away lol. I also have an ulterior motive… after making these peanut butter cookies, I am going to use this same recipe to make my peanut kiss cookies! (Of course I have to make sure I use Gluten Free Kisses… and in fact, all of my kisses are Gluten Free! lmao!!!) This way, family and friends can try a bona-fide Gluten Free version of one of our favorite cookies!
Instead of the usual list of ingredients… this time I will just tell you what 5 Delicious Recipes Hodgson Mill offers. (It’s on the back of the box in the picture.) I think it’s pretty cool that this one box of Gluten Free cookie mix can be used as a base for a variety of cookies. The 5 they offer seem to be just the beginning. It will offer me many afternoons of creative fun lol. (Well, so far I have made these twice and both times… guess what kind I made? Yup. Peanut Butter lol)
Almond Cookies: Add almond extract & slivered almonds – simple!
Pecan Cookies: Add pecans lol I don’t think I’ll try these… I prefer my pecans in pie… ooh I have to find a Gluten Free Pecan Pie recipe!!!
Chocolate Cookies: 1oz melted unsweetened chocolate & 1/2 cup sugar.
Peanut Butter Cookies: 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter & add fork design!
Chocolate Chip: Add chocolate chips!
Just imagine what else you can add! Are there favorite cookies you make? Need them Gluten Free? Try using this mix and create!
Here is a list of PROS and CONS as well as Alyss’s Rating:
Alyss’s Rating ~ Hodgson Mill: Gluten Free Cookie Mix:
5 Cheshire Cats!!!!
(see below for the rating system)
Great Base for unlimited cookie creations!
Texture and taste rock!
They have that nice crunch outside and soft inside, or you can just cook them longer for all crunch.
You can build on it & finally….
It’s really really good!
No cons here unless you just hate cookies.
These cookies came out with that bit of brown on the bumpy parts that make the outside nice and crunchy with a warm soft inside! Heaven!! Of course we didn’t let them cool all the way down! I got about 27 cookies out of the box. They are about an inch and a half in diameter. I made them a little smaller the next time and got 35. I will go even smaller when I add the kiss to them. I like mine so there is just a little ring of cookie around the chocolate.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week or weekend! What are you still reading for? Go get a box of this stuff and get creative! Maybe adding some cayenne to the chocolate ones??? The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. If you have any ideas or added something fantastic… please share! I’m serious! Share your cookie invention!
Just make sure to check your labels to be sure everything you may add is also Gluten Free!

About Alyssin WunderlundSo, me. Alyssin Wunderlund is a pen name if you haven’t already figured it out. I’m just a girl who is a daughter (If both parents have passed… am I still a daughter? I guess that would make it past tense as in I was a daughter, now I am an orphan?) an ex-wife, an ex-girlfriend, a mother to a wonderful son, a sister, a friend, a confidante, a muse… I can go on. I have my view on things and while I appreciate and will listen to others views… do not try to tell me mine are wrong. That will get you in hot water with me. I welcome comments that are respectful. My views are mine and if others share them, so be it. I try to keep in mind that everyone was someones precious baby once… no matter how they turned out. So on that note… check out what mess I've gotten into (or out of) now! ;)
