Cookies In A Jar Tutorial

So as you may know this year I made the pledge to only give handmade gifts to family & friends, well in honour of this pledge this Christmas I am giving all my playgroup mummy friends their own COOKIES IN A JAR!!!! These are so fun & colourful & just the perfect present for anyone.

Alright so onto the good part, to make these gorgeous little jars here's what you'll need;

1ltr Jar ~ I hoarded my Maccona coffee (200g) jars for the whole year but still didn't have enough so popped into Vinnies & picked spares up for as little as 50c
1 cup Plain Flour
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Bi Carb Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
100g M&Ms
125g White Choc Chips

Sift flour, baking powder, bi carb & salt together then place in the bottom of the jar. Layer brown sugar, caster sugar, rolled oats in this order, making sure to compress each layer. Finally layer M&Ms then white choc chips. That's it, simple isn't it.

Now the rest of the recipe goes like this which you might like to copy & paste into a Word document then laminate just as I have done;

Prep 10 mins Cooking 15 mins Makes 24

Extra ingredients needed to make cookies
125g butter, melted & cooled
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla

To make cookies, preheat oven to 190C
Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Empty jar into a large bowl. Add butter, egg
& vanilla. Stir until well combined. Shape
tablespoons of mixture into balls & place on
baking trays approx. 5cm apart.
Bake for 10 – 15 mins., swapping trays
halfway during cooking or until edges are
lightly browned.
Turn cookies onto a wire rack to cool.
Serve & Enjoy!!!

I hope you have as much fun as I did prepare these gifts & I hope your friends & family love them as much as mine did.
