Cookie Mix in a Jar is just that classic homemade gift that always goes over well, especially with teachers, neighbors and co-workers. This year, I made a batch for Sophie’s preschool teacher and used peanut butter and chocolate chips but I’ve used everything from butterscotch to peppermint chips and they’re all wonderful.
Usually, I see lots of Cookie Mix in a Jar recipes out there around the holidays, but this year I haven’t seen as many. So I wanted to share with you my favorite recipe, just in case you needed one:)
1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 c. chocolate chips
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
Mix flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl. Pour into the bottom of the jar.
Measure chocolate chips and pour over the flour mixture in the jar.
Mix brown sugar and granulated sugar together and add to the jar.
Attach the following recipe:
Preheat oven to 375° F. Beat 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 c.) softened butter, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in large mixing bowl until blended. Add cookie mix and mix well, breaking up any chunks. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
I made the tag by printing the recipe on holiday paper and attaching it to card stock. I covered the lid with red paper, added ribbon and that was it! This mix is good for 2-3 months when stored at room temperature.
