After tasting the sugar cookie mix by Pamela’s Products, my entire family would have never guessed they were gluten free. We’ve tried a few gluten free cookie mixes before and usually there’s a pretty distinct difference, often dry and lacking much flavor. Not the case at all with these. This mix made delicious cookies that somewhat mimic the taste of shortbread cookies. And the aren’t just Gluten-free but wheat and dairy free as well. We are also loving that the mix has absolutely no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Throwing the cookies together to bake went quickly. The recipe basically just called for one large egg and a stick of butter softened. It gave instructions to follow using a stand mixer. I don’t have a stand mixer, so I used just a regular hand held mixer and the dough still came out perfectly. The suggestion to use parchment paper between the dough and rolling pin was great. Our cookie dough was uniform without sticking to the our preparation area nor the rolling pin or cookie cutters.
I followed the instruction in baking time and the cookies came out perfectly, though be warned that you should let them cool on the pan for a bit or they’ll break apart! We didn’t frost our cookies but know they’d work out great for that. We plan on purchasing this mix again and again.
Note that there are numerous recipe suggestions on the packaging if you want to mix things up. There’s Roll & Cut Sugar Cookies, Refrigerator Cookies, Chocolate Chip Sugar Cookies, Cranberry & Orange Zest Cookies, Lemon Zest Sugar Cookies, Sugar Cookie Crust, Chocolate Sugar Cookies, Checker Board Cookies, Butter Shortbread, and Sugar Cookie Bars.
Highest of recommendations from my family of four!
