Favorite pre-packaged cookie mixes?

  • 9

I've been assigned cookies for this year's holiday potluck, and while I would normally make them from scratch, I just don't have the time this year. I would love suggestions on your favorite gourmet cookie mixes, preferably something a little more tasty and with less chemical preservatives than Betty Crocker or Nestle. Any brands that you like?

  1. Stonewall Kitchen mixes or Ina Garten would do nicely.

    I am not sure if Ina has cookie mixes, she does have cakes, cupcakes & muffins tho.

    1. I think the Jacques Torres line of cookie mixes is phenomenal... not a word I bandy about much.

      1. People on these boards speak highly off Ghirardelli's brownie mix. You can get it at Costco.

        1. I'm a big fan of the Lazy Baker cookie mixes, which offers a Pecan Shortbread flavor that I really like, as well as a really good Gingerbread mix that includes a cookie cutter and icing. (Good for kids.) The cookies come out great, practically homemade. I also like Sisters Gourmet, which feature the mix layered in a jar. Cute for a gift, but in terms of taste, I prefer Lazy Baker. I also believe that the Barefoot Contessa has gourmet cookie mixes, but I have never tried them.

          1. i'm pretty sure i've also read very positive reviews of some TJ's mixes lately...?
