It looks pretty good there, doesn't it? I love to bake, and I don't think I have ever made cookies from a mix. It's so easy to mix up a batch from scratch. But I bought one of these mixes back around Thanksgiving, because I just felt like trying it. I never did make it during the holidays, but I finally decided to give it a try a few days ago.
It was all right, but, with apologies to Betty Crocker, I think I'll stick with homemade gingerbread from here on in.
