Bake-a-Cookie Jar

Kelli Mahoney

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!



  • Glass jar
  • 1 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Ribbon


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.


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!
