    List of Ingredients

    Christmas Cookie Mix in a Jar

    Note from Cheri:
    Layer this mix into a Mason jar, wrap decoratively and give as gifts with baking directions attached. Cookie mixes also make excellent additions to gift baskets.

    3 C flour
    1 C packed dark brown sugar
    1/2 C granulated sugar
    1 tsp. baking powder
    3/4 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1 1/3 C semi-sweet chocolate chips


    Layer the following the above ingredients in a 1 quart Mason jar. Use a nice ribbon 2 attach two small plastic bags of candy melts to the rim of the jar. Each bag should have about 20 candy melts in it -- one bag in red, one in green (or whichever colors you prefer).

    Note: Candy melts are similar to chocolate, but are designed to melt easily for the home cook. Find them in candy and cake decorating supply shops.

    Attach the following directions to the jar:

    Empty contents of this jar into a large bowl. Combine 3/4 cup melted, cooled butter with 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract. Stir this into the contents of the jar until just mixed. Drop dough by tablespoons full, 2" apart, onto an greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack for a minute before removing from pan to cool completely on the rack. Melt each colour of candy melts in a plastic zipper storage bag in the microwave until melted, about 30 seconds. Snip corner of each bag; drizzle over cookies.
