Print Email



3 cookie recipes


  • Serves: Makes about 3 dozen cookies
  • Course: Desserts


  • 2 ¼ cups (560 ml) Cookie Mix
  • ½ cup (125 ml) dried cherries
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) milk
  • 1  tbsp (15 ml) vanilla extract


  1. For Cherry Oatmeal Cookies, combine Cookie Mix and cherries in a large bowl. Stir remaining ingredients together in a small bowl, add to dry ingredients, and stir until evenly combined.
  2. Drop level tablespoons of the batter onto parchment-lined or greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 20–25 minutes or until golden brown. (If you use Cookie Mix taken right out of the refrigerator, baking may take a few minutes longer.)
  3. Variations:
  4. - For Chocolate Chai Spice Cookies, omit cherries. Blend 2 ½ tsp (12  ml) Chai Spice Mix, 3  tbsp (45  ml) chopped candied ginger, and a generous ½ cup (125  ml) of your favourite chocolate bar, coarsely chopped, into the Cookie Mix. Continue as directed, topping each cookie with an extra chunk of chocolate bar before baking.
  5. - For Apricot Cashew Cookies, omit cherries. Blend 2  tsp (10  ml) cinnamon, ½  cup (125  ml) chopped apricots, and ¼ cup (60  ml) chopped cashews into the Cookie Mix. Mix 1  tbsp (15  ml) orange marmalade into liquid ingredients. Continue as directed, pressing an extra cashew into the top of each cookie before baking.
  6. - To create your own signature cookie, replace the cherries with ½ cup (125  ml) of just about whatever you like, such as pumpkin, sunflower, or sesame seeds, toasted slivered almonds, chopped toasted hazelnuts, chopped gumdrops, shredded coconut, crunched-up corn flakes, chunks of white chocolate, chocolate chips, or even chopped pretzels. You can also drizzle melted chocolate over the cooled cookies. Go wild!
