Homemade Christmas Gift

Need a quick and easy homemade Christmas gift? Well, what about a cookies in a jar recipe. All you need is a glass jar, ingredients, a tag with the recipe, ribbon, and a cookie cutter.

In the glass jar layer:
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
**mix together
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c white granulated sugar
1 c mini chocolate chips/ mini M & M's

Once the jar is filled, tie a ribbon around the top and attach a tag with the recipe (see picture below) and a cookie cutter. (You can create a tag using Microsoft Word and adding a fun holiday border. Cut your tag with decorative scissors and decorate.)
**the tag reads:

Best-Ever Cookies

Makes 4 dozen

1 jar Best Ever Cookie Mix
1 cup butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Using an electric mixer cream the butter, eggs, and vanilla. Add the cookie mix and stir until well blended. Drop the cookies by rounded tablespoons on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
