I know I've done a jar mix tutorial before, but I had to share this really cool recipe called Master Cookie Mix at allrecipes.com. I showed my MOPS group(Mothers Of PreSchoolers) how to make 'em this morning. It's a GREAT recipe if you're making LOTS of jar mixes. Think holiday gift giving, teachers gifts, presents for neighbors, etc.
This recipe produces 6 jars of cookie mix. I had to multiply that TIMES 6. (After reading this recipe & all the reviews I decided to omit the butterscotch chips.) And most of the ingredients were purchased in the bulk foods section of my local grocery store. Each jar mix cost about 2 bucks. Inexpensive! And, somewhat handmade! Right up my gift-giving crafty alley.
Measure 4 cups into your quart jar. It might look like it won't fit, but shake & shimmy the jar & most of it will settle to the bottom, leaving room at top for that last scoop.
...& 1 teaspoon of vanilla. I used my favorite Mexican vanilla, which is almost gone. I might soon have to take a little road trip south of the border...
Scoop by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet & bake at 375degrees F for 10-12 minutes. I used parchment paper which makes for great cookies every time.
