Well this sure gave me a good upper body work-out. This makes a huge amount, so I'll be experiementing with it making different Oatmeal Cookies. Did I say this makes a HUGE amount.
I decided to cut this recipe in half, & now wish I hadn't, but . . . ~ IT'S A GREAT, EASY-TO-PREPARE MIX, I know, 'cause I then turned around & made one of your cookie recipes! Very nice to have on hand, especially during the holidays! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my partners in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #22]
This recipe sounds wonderful, but will be impossible to make without the final baking instructions.
