Vitacost Gluten Free No-Chip Cookie Mix - Non-GMO -- 26.08 oz (740 g)
One the first day, these cookies are very good--couldn't tell them from the gluten ones. But as the week wore on, they got very dry--and I had them in a sealed container. By the end of the week, it was worse than eating a mouth full of sweetened flour--it dried you out worse than just a mouthful of dry flour. But if you are going to eat them all on the first day, toss in a bunch of chopped walnuts and chocolate chips and enjoy.

A great starting point cookie mix!
I made these with the addition of lemon oil and lemon juice powder for lemon coolers and these came out great. This is a great neutral mix, can add chocolate chips, fruit, extracts, oils - whatever flavors you want.
They did spread out when baking though, I would recommend making these in a whoopie pie pan to preserve the shape. Also, I found the dough to be too dry and crumbly, I worked it with wet hands to make it less crumbly. I will try adding another egg or a couple tbs water next time.
Other than that, they were great. Barely grainy at all, and they have a nice crunch to them.

Nice flavor and crunch
Although this cookie is a little grainy when compared with wheat flour cookies, they are not as grainy as most of the other gluten-free cookies I have tried, and the texture is easy to ignore because they have a nice crisp crunch and a "true to chocolate chip cookie" flavor (when you add a bag of chocolate chips, of course). I tested them at a party of "normal" cookie eaters, and everyone loved them. I like that I can add my own chips (as I like high quality chocolate) and nuts (any nut would go well with the dough). You can also mix the dough ahead of time and freeze it to bake off later. One box made 44 - 3" cookies (with 2 cups of chocolate chips added).
