Shirley J Cookie Mixes - Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
You probably already know that I'm a big fan of Shirley J Whisk Bliss and Shirley J Mugging Cake in a Mug Mixes. It probably won't surprise you that I love Shirley J Cookie Mixes! All my Christmas cookies will be made from these five fantastic mixes - Coconutty Macaroon, Classic Sugar, New York Black and White, Soft Ginger Molasses and Oatmeal Jumbles.
The Shirley J website is jam-packed with loads of recipe ideas for all her products and her cookie mixes are no exception. Plain cookies are, of course, delicious but Christmas cookies should always be more magical, with extra goodies mixed in or placed on top. One of the things I totally love about Shirley J Cookie Mixes is that they are SO easy to make. Several of them are so simple that I can whip up a batch of cookies from beginning to end in less than 30 minutes.
My husband's favorite oatmeal cookies are always oatmeal raisin, so I made the Shirley J Oatmeal Jumbles with raisins. He took a tray of them into work for a company potluck and he said they disappeared faster than everything else on the table. I guess it's a good thing he ate a few before he left for work!
The next batch of Oatmeal Jumbles I'm going to make with chocolate chips. I also found two fabulous recipes on the Shirley J website for using Oatmeal Jumbles Cookie Mix - Oatmeal Cherry-Chocolate Jumbles and Shirley J Skillet Cookie. I love the versatility of these products!
The Classic Sugar Cookie Mix is perfect for making the kind of cookies your kids will want to decorate with frosting, candies, and sprinkles. I took the easy way out and broke up a delicious Candy Cane Candy Bar and pressed one rectangular piece into the top of each sugar cookie before baking it. These sugar cookies spread out nice and big, plus they have a delightfully crispy sweet taste! I'll be baking more cookies over the next few weeks and will share my creations with you, but I wanted to get a GIVEAWAY up on my blog for you!
