Cookie Mix In A Jar

Are you ready for some fun? Well, here’s one you an’ your older kids or grand kids can do up without makin’ a mess in the kitchen, or even turnin’ on the oven….Plus, as a special “Thank You” gift, or SUPER Christmas present to acquaintances an’ folks like your mailman, beautician, barber, etc., this is a nice remembrance without breakin’ the bank!

Homemade gifts in a jar is an easy and inexpensive way to make homemade gifts! Simply layer the ingredients for any of these recipes in a jar, add a ribbon and a tag, and you have a simple but stylish gift.

You'll need some stuff gathered before you begin, and here’s the list below.

Cookie Mix In A Jar Ingredients:

1) Quart jars with lids (washed an’ dried really, really good!)
2) Scraps of materiel (5X5 inch squares big enough to cover the lid tops.)
3) Ribbon (enough to encircle all the lids-with some tied an’ danglin’ down.)
4) Glue (a small bottle of Elmer’s will do.)
5) Paper (for writin’ recipes on, of course. Use your noggin’!)
6) Recipe & ingredients (well, duh!)

You'll be addin’ ONLY DRY INGREDIENTS to the jar, (if ya can’t figure out WHY, stop right here, an’ don’t bother with this recipe.)

NOTE: DO NOT put ingredients in a bowl to mix all together, (the idea is to LAYER these ingredients in the jars one at a time, an’ DON’T go shakin’ it up when loaded either.) You should have two colors in the jar, white on bottom, & the color of chips, nuts, or raisins on top….GET IT?

Cookie Mix in a Jar Dry Ingredients:

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup M&Ms, or chocolate chips, or butterscotch chips, or raisins, or nuts.

While you’re fillin’ jars, get the kids busy decoratin’ jar lids.

1) Cut material scraps into 5X5’ inch squares.
2) Glue cloth to center of ringed lid (or solid lid if you’re usin’ old mayo jars.)
3) Tie ribbon or raffia (if ya know what that is) around lid secured on jar. It makes cloth edges have a gathered effect, an’ holds ‘em down pretty-like too.)
4) Print the cookie-mix in a jar recipe (IN FULL) on nice paper that will fit on one side of the jar.
5) Trim recipe edges with pinking sheers.
6) Glue recipe to jar at a cute angle, (or hold it on with Christmas “To & From” tag.)


DO NOT add to the jar. (Has to be included in the recipe tho’ or the
cookies will NEVER happen!)

1 jar of cookie mix
3/4 cup butter or margarine (HINT: use butter, they sure taste better even if there are a few more calories. Geeze! You’re eatin’ a cookie, not a piece of celery. Forget the diet for once!)
2 eggs (lightly whipped with a fork in a small bowl.)
1 tsp. vanilla

In a large bowl, stir cookie mix WET ingredients all together real good….Dump in cookie mix DRY ingredients right outta that gift-jar some ol’ sweetie gave ya, an’ stir like mad, (by hand, don’t ya get lazy on me now) all ingredients ‘til well mixed.

With a tablespoon, drop cookies on baking sheet.

Bake your cookie mix in a jar recipe at 375 degrees, 10 to 12 minutes. (Watch ‘em close. Nobody likes burnt cookies.)

Now, if you can think of more fun, a nicer little gift, or better tastin’ cookies than this fine recipe, well then, give us a holler!

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
