This is an old OLD Pillsbury recipe from a magazine that everybody's mom and grandma have been making for years. Then you can look up the TEN holiday cookies you can make from this mix they are: Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Sticks Oatmeal Carmelitas Oatmeal Raisin Toffee Bars Butterballs Peanut Butter (or with kisses pressed in the middle) and Cut-Out Sugar Cookies.

This really helped simplify my xmas cookie baking for a pot luck. From this recipe I made 4 of the cookie types all were good I reviewed each seperately. I had about 8 dozen cookies in 2 hrs! I will use this again and tweak the individual recipes to correct some problems. Read More

This dough is DELICIOUS! It is so quick and it tastes great straight out of the bowl. I used it as the base for the make ahead toffee bars. Exactly what I was looking for to give as holiday gifts! Thank you Lynn. Read More

Very easy to use. I'm not sure how it fares in the fridge for up to 4 weeks though as I used the batch I made the same day. I made several of the other "Make Ahead" recipes and most of them turned out just great. Making the mix and then using it for several of the different cookie recipes sure makes it easy to bake a few different types of cookies easily-would be a huge help at the holidays! Read More
