I tried this recipe last night. I did add 1/4c of butter to help the mix stay together- because it did seem a little crumbly. The cookies turned out amazing. I only made a dozen and rolled the rest into loaves so I could make them quick for a get together later this week. I will definetly be making these as gifts for friends and family this year. Thanks for another wonderful recipe! I also like Cookie Mix in a Jar VI & VIII.

I made this recipe to see if I wanted to use it for gift giving. It was very dry, hard to mix and did not turn out very well. I double checked the ingredients I put in, so I know that wasn't the problem. If I were you, I would try a different recipe.

I gave this as a gift to my sister. After she baked them she told me her 1 1/2 year old daughter kept saying "More cookie more cookie!"
