INGREDIENTS:

(Makes 1 1/2 dozen cookies, approx., 1 JAR)

(NOTE: you’ll need a jar larger than a quart to be able to fit everything in. Probably twice the size would work)

½ cup flour

½ tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. salt

½ tsp. cinnamon

Sprinkle of nutmeg

1 ½ cups quick oatmeal

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

½ cups chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

Fill Jar with Oats

In a medium small bowl, combine first five ingredients on list: (flour, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and baking soda).

Pour mixture neatly over oatmeal. Be sure while you’re adding ingredients to jar not to shake it, or the layers will be muddled.

In same bowl, combine the two sugars together. Then pour over as third layer in jar.

Pour the chocolate chips into jar. Secure sealed lid.

On card stock, preferably, write instructions to attach to jar so that your friends/family will know how to use the cookie mix jar in their kitchen:

RECIPE TO ATTACH:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Mix egg, butter, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Add cookie jar mix.

3. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake in preheated oven for 10-11 minutes.

Punch a hole in your card stock, and string ribbon through it, and tie it to jar. You are done with your gift.
