For bakers who are unable to bake cookies from scratch, McDougalls Cookie Mixes from RHM (Reading) are described as quick and easy to use and deliver a ‘home-made’ taste.

McDougalls has introduced an oat cookie mix to complement its plain and chocolate varieties, which produces cookies that are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

Oat Cookie Mix contains 26% oats, and is targeted at health conscious customers. It should be mixed slowly with cold water for one minute and the cookies baked for 9-11 minutes for a chewy texture or 13-15 minutes for a crunchy one.
