If you know me you know, I love cookies!
But I hate mess. I also hate powdered cookies mixes. They just never taste right. But The May Cookie Co. is different!
I discovered these cookies over the summer while I was down Cape Cod and didn’t have a whole lot of ingredients to work with. I decided to try out this boxed goodness on a whim and have been addicted ever since!
Instead of buying a bunch of ingredients, all you need to add is the wet ingredients (butter, egg, vanilla etc..). When you open the box this is what you find inside.
All the ingredients are separated and pre-measured. I found that the multiple pouches inside give you the ability to still have fun making cookies with your kids, since there are still multiple components to this process. I also found the ingredients all maintained their own individual flavors instead of just tasting as one powdery mass.
I mixed all the ingredients in my Kitchen Aid and the batter looked as fresh as any homemade cookie dough I have ever made! I popped it on a cookie pan and into the oven for 10 minutes. I was able to get 28 cookies out of the mix.
The May Cookie Co. is a mother/daughter team who wanted to make cookies “all natural, pure and simple; less sugar and made better with whole grains” which are “more satisfying treats without the guilt.” That is like my dream come true. A better version of a cookie is exactly what I am all about. It is all about compromise and balance, not deprivation!
These cookies cooked on the pan for 5 minutes after they were done, which left them at a yummy golden brown. They were crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside like every cookie should be!
While the cookies were cooling, I went to do the dishes. It is amazing how much less mess there is when you don’t have to include a bunch of different bowls and measuring cups. Also since the flour and sugar was pre-measured I didn’t spill anything for a change. Amen.
Cooper clearly was excited to try the cookies. Cooper is a really fussy eater and is really maintaining life on yogurt and applesauce. If I let him have cookies all the time , it would probably be the only thing he would eat, and yogurt and applesauce would be out, so I try to limit them.
As expected, Cooper loved them and I have to say that I do too. I think this is a great way to bake when you do not want to make a huge mess or buy a bunch of ingredients. I also really love the Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies which is egg and dairy free for all of those people with sensitives or allergies!
So this holiday season when you are in a pinch and need something quick, easy, and still have the taste of homemade check these out at your grocery store for around $6.99. You won’t regret it!
**This is not a paid or sponsored post. I just really really like these cookies and I buy them at Whole Foods when I need a sweet treat. It wouldn’t be fair to keep this secret to myself! :) I also just saw they sell pre-made cookies and bars and I want to know where I can find them and why they aren’t currently in my life?!
