Frequently Asked Questions.
What can I use for a dairy free margarine?
Fleischmann's Unsalted Margarine is a dairy free margarine. Earth Balance is another dairy free alternative found in many natural grocery stores. Always check with the manufacturer in case of any ingredient changes or new formulations.
Can you substitute oil for margarine in all of the Cherrybrook mixes?
Yes, you may substitute oil for margarine in all Cherrybrook Kitchen cake and cookie mixes. The amounts will stay the same.
Why does the box state to roll the cookie dough into balls before placing onto a cookie sheet?
Forming round balls with the dough creates a nice, round shape, and ensures that the cookie will not fall flat.
How many mixes will I need to create a double layer cake or a large sheet cake?
You will need 2 mixes to create a double layer cake or one 9x12 sheet cake. You even want to have chocolate for one layer and vanilla for a second layer!
How should I store my Cherrybrook Kitchen Goodies?
You should let them cool completely, and then place them in an airtight container. They will last up to a week long!
Why doesn't the cookie dough look or feel the same way as ordinary cookie dough?
This is no ordinary cookie! The dough will have a sheen to it, and a bit of a crumbly texture, but don't despair. Delicious, decadent cookies are only 8 minutes away. Magic!
