This is a visually stimulating gift that may make the receiver either run to the kitchen to start baking or put your masterpiece on display. By filling a jar with the dry ingredients needed to bake some chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, you provide almost all the items a person will need to make the delicious snack. But don't forget to give them the recipe!

Ingredients:

Instructions:

In the order listed above, place the dry ingredients into the glass jar. If you want, you can change the order, as sometimes putting the chocolate chips on the top adds a nice touch. Put the top on the jar and tie with a bow. Give the gift with a recipe card letting the person know how to use the ingredients.

Recipe:

Other ingredients needed - 1 stick softened butter, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix wet and dry ingredients in bowl well. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9 to 10 minutes for chewy cookie or 12 to 13 minutes for crispy cookie. Cool one minute. Makes 32 cookies. 1 cookie has 60 calories, but a lot of love!

I am looking for a recipe for a sugar cookie mix. This would be the type like a Betty Crocker dry mix which you can purchase. I happened to see a recipe by Sandra Lee which uses the sugar cookie mix, and a few more things to make biscotti. It sounded pretty good. Thank you very much.
