Of course my husband is a goner. He buys his gross, processed snacks all the time, and thinks he can stash them away and I won't notice. He isn't fooling me one bit, but at least the kids can't get into them.
So imagine my husband's surprise when I told him I was getting some decadent baking mixes to review! Cookies...Fruit crisp...Yum! He asked what the catch was. Were they somehow sugar-free? Tasteless? Do they taste like cardboard? (Yes, I was asked all of these questions.) He was very happy when I told him that none of these were the case. Among Friends makes baking mixes that are full of high quality organic ingredients you can pronounce, and many varieties are gluten-free. (But you'd never, ever know it!)

About Among Friends Baking Mixes :
We know firsthand about the perils of healthy cookies that taste like the cardboard they’re packaged in. You see, I was blessed with three boys and the middle one is a bloodhound who sniffs everything before he eats it. I knew if I made a cookie that passed the tyranny of Shane’s taste buds, I would have accomplished something. The imp will eat as many Suzie Q. cookies as I can keep in the jar (Needless to say, we’re mum with our kids on the benefits of flax and whole grains).
Among Friends mixes reflect our desire to share our baked goods with other discriminating palates. Our goal is simple: we want to help people fill their kitchens with fresh-from-the-oven baked goods made from the best ingredients. Our mixes make baking easy for people on those days when treats from scratch are impractical or well nigh impossible. We all have those days. Our name tells it all. Each of our baking mixes is handcrafted for friends and named for someone we love, a friend or family member.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well the awesome folks at Among Friends sent me a few of their baking mixes to try with my family. After all, seeing (and tasting) is believing!
When the cookies were done baking, they looked wonderful. Since I did make them a bit larger than called for, they did spread a bit on the baking sheet. This was not a problem though, and they were very easy to remove and cool.
