Homemade Cookie and Brownie Mix

Cookie and brownie mixes probably rank at the top of the convenience-food favorites list. A typical package at the store, which yields about a dozen brownies, costs about $2.80. The following mix costs about $2.06 and makes enough for two batches of one dozen brownies or six dozen cookies.

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup solid vegetable shortening
Place dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
When you're ready, put your mix to use in cookies or brownies.

Home made mixes have been part of my kitchen for decades.
The ingredients are only what I put in; no allergy worries or strange preservatives.
Three cheers for you Hobby Farm Kitchens.

You'll find directions if you click on the underlined words "cookies" or "brownies" in the last sentence under Preparation. ("When you're ready, put your mix to use in cookies or brownies.")
