Make 100 cookies from the one recipe, made with only four ingredients for the dough. This freezable big batch cookie recipe is great for lunchboxes and baking in advance to freeze.
These 100+ cookies from 1 mix is one of my absolute favourite recipes for so many different reasons. To make the basic batter it only requires 4 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and it is super budget friendly.
These are the reasons why I love this 100+ cookies from 1 mix recipe:
- Reason #1 – They are so soft and buttery, I probably tend to undercook them so they are soft
- Reason #1 – This recipe is really easy
- Reason #3 – It makes so many
- Reason #4 – You can create so many varieties of flavours from the one mix
- Reason #5 – They are freezer friendly
Now I do say 100+ cookies from 1 mix, however, it does really depend on how big you roll your balls of batter. I tend to make around 60-100 cookies, if I make jam drops I usually roll bigger dough balls which results in less cookies.
My Lunch Box Recipe Cookbook is filled with over 50 sweet and savoury lunch box recipes that are easy to make, delicious, and freezer friendly too! They provide the entire family (kids and adults alike) with quick and healthy alternatives to boring sandwiches, plus I’ve kept all recipes affordable and nut free (but packed with lots of hidden veggies), so that they are not only perfect for school lunches. They also lend themselves beautifully to kid’s birthday parties. Fill your freezer up with some of these snacks to have on hand for lunch boxes, making that morning lunch box packing madness a thing of the past.

Adjust the sugar amount in the recipe to your taste. I usually make a few dozen cookie batches then freeze the leftover mix into 2 logs. That way I can have fresh baked cookies ready in no time the next time I need them.
