That is amusing.


richard says "do you think it's the sort of thing a mother would send to her floundering son on his first christmas away from home along with the clean laundry?"

Why yes, yes it is. It's useful for someone who doesn't ordinarily have baking ingredients on hand. It's useful for when someone doesn't want to bother or take the time to measure out dry ingredients individually (in some cases that's very handy--I make myself waffle mix so I can just scoop the dry stuff out, stir in some liquid, and there I have it--waffle batter in a jiffy).

How is it as good a gift as actual cookies would be? Well, upon using it, the person gets to have fresh, warm from the oven cookies (which is only sometimes the case with a gift of actual cookies). Also they get to have cookies later, after they are no longer buried under all the pre-made cookies that everyone else gave them.
