     It's that time of year again! It's Christmas time and that means that it is time to look for great holiday gift ideas for neighbors and friends! It is also time to spend a lot of time baking away in the kitchen. I have a fabulous company to tell you about today.  J.R. Watkins is a company that carries a wide variety of products that includes: dessert mixes, soup and gravy bases, beverages, bread mix and pizza crust, extracts, seasoning blends, dips and spreads, cleaners, detergents, cough and cold medicine, pain relief products, and the list goes on and on.

     J.R. Watkins has Independent Watkins Associates. One of the great independent associates at J.R. Watkins is Evelyn Leon. Evelyn Leon is kind, friendly, and ships products promptly.

     Evelyn Leon was kind enough to send me a Shortbread Cookie Mix to review. I was excited to see what the Shortbread Cookies would taste like. I was also excited to make these cookies easily with the cookie mix. No measuring and no hassle! That is how I love to bake! Simply add butter to the mix and you are set! Awesome! The Shortbread Cookie Mix comes in a pretty gold package that would be perfect to wrap a bow around and give as a gift to your family or neighbors. 

"Everybody loves buttery shortbread cookies-now you can make them at home easily! Enjoy them made by the basic recipe on the package, dip them in melted chocolate or
flavor them with one of our fantastic extracts."

     The directions to make the Shortbread Cookies are very simple! The directions are as easy as cutting a cup of butter into the mix until dough is formed. Roll out the dough to 1/4" thick and then use cookie cutters to make 3 " cookies. The cookies bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes. The cookies can also be dipped into chocolate with added sprinkles or chopped nuts on top for an additional fancy look and an additional great taste.

      I had a heart cookie cutter on hand so I made my cookies in a heart shape! I think they turned out cute and the heart shape is also a great way to show love this holiday season! The cookies turned out perfect by following the instructions on how to prepare and bake the cookies. I lost count of how many cookies the shortbread cookie mix made because we could not resist eating the cookies right away. The mix did make many cookies and I was impressed with the quantity that it made. The mix made around 2 dozen cookies.

     The cookies tasted very yummy with a buttery perfect shortbread cookie taste. I loved the chocolate added to the shortbread cookies because it gave an added chocolate taste to the shortbread cookies which was a perfect taste! These are the perfect dessert and treat this holiday season! They are simple, easy, and stress-free to make during this stressful holiday season!
