I was in Manhattan Mon tana and was excited to see your shop/products. Tonight I was going to make the “Our best Sugar Cookie Mix”. The directions are confusing.
#1 SUGAR (how much?)
#2 I assume dry ingredients refers to contents of package

    Hi Deb,
    So sorry – I think I replied to you on FB, right? There was a typo on the label. We’ve fixed it now. You don’t need to add any sugar. It is already in the mix.
    Thanks,
    Deb
