When my older brother was 13 he became enveloped in the “culinary arts.” Everyday after school he would make sure I got off the bus safely and keep me entertained until our parents came home. He would always make snacks for me; brownies, cookies, cupcakes, etc... Unfortunately he usually ended up dropping something on the floor, or would forget a primary ingredient. One day, he put his cookies in the oven for what was supposed to be a few minutes. The oven temperature was too high and the dough was too thick on the pan. I called to him and he raced downstairs and opened the door to the oven to find a scene resembling an exploded Pillsbury Dough Boy. This mix is for people of ranges of talent in the kitchen. It is quick and easy and perfect for avoiding my family’s Top Chef troubles.
