MY SURPRISINGLY AWESOME TRADER JOE’S FINDING; a “SEASONAL MAPLE PECAN COOKIES AND CAKE MIX”, SERIOUSLY? YEP!
As I always do on a weekly basis, I went to Trader’s Joe’s last fall to get my goodies. Suddenly, I came across a huge display of baking mix indicating it was a seasonal product. Out of curiosity, I purchase 2 boxes to test the product at home. I never came across a cake mix that you can use to make cookies as well. So, I made the cookies and I was so thrilled with the product that I decided to go back to the store to get more boxes that same week. They not only ran out of the product in my nearby store, but in all the stores in the Washington Metro Area. It was that good and I just missed it until next Fall. Auughhttdds!
