Rated 2 out of 5 by Fourteen Cups of Excess Ingredient The problem here is that one ingredient, "Homemade Cookie Mix", requires a completely separate recipe which yields 16 cups, of which you will only use a fraction. The result is a cookie with classic taste and texture, and 14 cups of excess "Homemade Cookie Mix" which you may never have time to use. I did use two more cups of the mix to redo the recipe, substituting 1 1/4 cups Smuckers® Natural Peanut Butter (Chunky) in place of the Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter and chopped salted peanuts. This produced much more peanut taste. This recipe really needs to be reengineered to become self-contained, incorporating all of the ingredients of the "Homemade Cookie Mix" in the proper proportions. August 26, 2012
