Review and Give-away: Jules Gluten Free Cookie Mix

Jules Gluten Free flour is my preferred flour blend these days. It works in everything from quick breads to coconut fried shrimp. It coats chicken so well that I can be lazy when making chicken fingers, dredging the chicken directly in the flour without any egg or milk wash. Yes, the flour is superb, to say the least. Obviously, when I found out the company now offers a gluten-free cookie mix, I was thrilled to be able to test taste it! For people with other food intolerances, the cookie mix is free of dairy, soy, nuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish and eggs as well.

My Jules Gluten Free Cookie Mix arrived a few weeks ago and when I finally took the time to make chocolate chip cookies with it, I was thrilled with the taste, texture and ease of use of the mix. There was one slight glitch in the instructions as they mention adding vanilla, but didn’t say how much. The instructions are for the whole bag which makes about 60 cookies. Based on that number, I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the batter. McCormick’s pure vanilla extract is now labeled gluten-free, but the company would not state that anything they have is gluten-free. That was after I thanked them for labeling the vanilla gluten-free. So, I now use the Laura Lynn brand of vanilla from Ingles.

As it turned out, the mention of vanilla was not supposed to be on the cookie mix bag and on the new labels, vanilla will not be listed in the instructions. Luckily, the cookies did not suffer one bit with the addition of the extra vanilla (there is vanilla powder already in the mix). So, what I did wrong when making my cookies was make them way too big. Instead of making them the size of a teaspoon, mine were more like oversized tablespoons. That is why the mix yielded only about 36 cookies, instead of 60. The cookies weren’t too pretty when all was said and done (because they were so big!), but that did not affect the taste one bit either.

The cookies tasted like something your Grandmother would make when you were little. For those of you who grew up on cut and bake chocolate chip cookies, these are better than those were. And I happened to love the cut and bake cookies right up until my celiac diagnosis. You get used to eating things you did as a child, I guess. Anyway, many people who are more creative bakers than I am have made many more types of great cookies with the new mix from Jules Gluten Free. I never made home made cookies or even those from a mix before I went gluten-free – only the cut and bake type. Therefore, I have  no desire to make other types of cookies from the new cookie mix from Jules.  These delicious and perfectly chewy chocolate chip cookies are the perfect gluten-free cookie for our house!

The winner will be posted here on July 9th and the winner’s name, e-mail address and shipping address will be submitted to Jules Gluten Free.  Post any comment below for your chance to win this great new product.

    I would love to try this…I’ve been buying some Gluten Free chocolate chip cookies, but none have the flavor or texture I’ve been craving. I haven’t tried to make my own yet, and would love to try this. Thanks.

    I love Jules GF Flour and have a huge 50 lb bag in my kitchen as I type this! I love the fact that I can use it cup for cup in any regular recipe that calls for flour. No more buying five different flours to make it taste ‘normal’. I’d love to try Jule’s new gf cookie mix!

  8. Jen says:

    We are only 6 weeks into the gluten free diet for my daughter, who is wheat allergic and possibly celiac, so I’d LOVE to try the mixes – especially since they appear to be friendly to multiple food allergies, which we are dealing with. Thank you for the chance!

    I’d love to win these for the favorite little gfree girl in my life!

  14. Connie Krute says:

    I’ve used Jules flour for about a year. My 60+ year old family recipe for Buttermilk Pound Cake never tasted so good! I’ve used it successfully in several of my favorite recipes. I’m anxious to try the new cookie mix!

  15. Debbie says:

    My hubby has celiac and I have been trying out flours from my local store to bake cookies/etc. I would love to win these mixes so that I could try them out for him :D Thanks.

  16. michelle says:

    I have tried Jules Gluten-Free Flour and love it! I miss decorating sugar cut-out cookies and would love to be able to do that again.

  17. Elissa says:

    I would love to try this one! Sounds great!

  18. hailey says:

    I would love to try Jules mixes, but the cost of shipping puts them out of my price range ( we live in the the city with tons of GF flour options at the stores. I’m waiting on the “Free shipping” promo to come before I place a big order :)

  19. Mary Ann says:

    I would love to try Jules Gluten Free mixes! Recently I made Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and they were just alright…nothing to write home about. I would love to try Jules to see and taste the difference!

  20. Carin Ritter says:

    I have been so happy with Jules Flour and I would love to be entered in the cookie mix context! Thanks!

  21. Nancy says:

    I have been using Jules All Purpose flour for bread making and it is delicious. As a matter of fact, I have one baking in the bread maker right now and it is smelling soooo good. I haven’t ordered the cookie mix as of yet, so now here’s hoping to win. Thanks Jules for all you do for us that have to be GF (and CF)!!!

  22. Jennifer Gurshtein says:

    I would love to try this mix! I’ve just recently found out I have a gluten allergy and since I’ve gone GF my life has completely changed for the better!! But there are some things I miss, like making delicious cookies without turning my kitchen into a well-used bakery. :)

  23. Tonia says:

    I am fairly new to gluten free cooking and baking and all my cookie baking has been major flops so I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to try out Jules Cookie Mix or any of her other mixes that she has available.

  24. Michelle says:

    I have tried Jules GF flour mix and it’s great, so I would love to try the cookie mix as I’m sure it’s just as good! :)

  25. Renee says:

    I just recently found Jules website and have thought about trying some of her flour mix just to see if it is really as good as others say. I’d love to win the sample mixes so I can try for myself!

  26. Cindy says:

    I have celiac, as does one of my sisters and my nephew. He’s getting married in April, and I’d love to give the samples to his fiance as a shower gift — along with a good GF cookbook!

  27. Darlyn Rottkamp says:

    Your flour has saved my life!!! Now the cookie mix….Jules, you’re the best.
    Thanks

  28. Jamie Brummel says:

    I am not a baker — not even in my pre-gluten free days. I’ve always preferred store-bought mixes when I do bake because they save time. I do enjoy eating yummy cookies, though, and would love to see how these compare to my mom’s Tollhouse cookies. :)

  29. Lisa says:

    I love to bake and would love to try these.

  30. Kathleen Connors says:

    I’ll have to see if Jules is available in Madison, WI. I’m still new to this whole gluten free thing!!

  31. Jennifer Croley says:

    The new cookie mix sounds great. I hope I win!

  32. Dionne says:

    I’d love to try Jules! That’s one of the mixes left that I haven’t tried :)

  33. Awesome! Love hearing what your favs are! =)

  34. Thanks to all who’ve entered to win this great new mix! Just in case you have heard that Jules Gluten Free ran out of the new mix (due to the overwhelming response to it!) it is now back in stock. Check back tomorrow to see who the lucky winner is. It’s too hot to bake cookies here but when the weather cools off, I look forward to making some cookie bars with the mix. I don’t know how to do it but I bet Jules will figure it out…there is something about cookie bars that I love even more than cookies!

  35. Christi King says:

    I’d love to win the mix to try with my 3 year old!
