I had tried Betty Crocker's mixes when they came out knowing the brand and having baked with them regularly growing up. We got their cookies figuring its the easiest and we had tried other cookie mixes recently so we gave them a shot. At that time we agreed as a family they were OK.... Not great, just OK, they tasted gluten free, they didn't taste the same as other chocolate chip cookies.
Fast forward 2 years, and my parents come home from grocery shopping with a bag of Betty Crocker gluten free chocolate chip cookies and a box of their brownie mix and informed me they had a taste for baked goods. Well guess thats my cue to bake. They bought the main ingredients i could suppliment the rest. We had a couple friends over for a memorial day bbq... But then it felt the need to be cold and rainy, so we ended up in doors watching a Cake Boss marathon. So i whipped up a batch of cookies, since we were drooling over the fancy cakes. Fresh out of the oven they were fabulous! They melted down like normal cookies, (i've had several mixes that were like cement to work with, and the shape of the dough blob you drop on the cookie sheet is the shape that comes put of the oven.)
These melted out nicely, and were very good, fresh out of the oven. We had some left, so we put them in a tupperware and put them on the table the next day. The day after they had the grainy taste i remembered from the first time we tried the mix. I was disappointed by this, they were so good, fresh out of the oven. But i guess knowing that, my expectations are set. Though this is still not my favorite, i know it can work in a pinch.
