For one, these cookies are all somewhat distinctive. You could never tell they all came from the same basic mix. For another thing, other than the red and green sugar on the peanut blossom variation, these cookies are not overly Christmasy at all, but merely festive. They would be good anytime one had to make a lot of pretty cookies rather quickly. For yet another, the mix does not use shortening as many cookie mixes do, but uses real butter. Much nicer, more flavorful, and better for you. I think that the next time I need cookies for an occasion, I'll give this mix a try!
