16 Days 'Til Christmas!!

For this post I'm sharing a craft that I found last year! I went on an annual Christmas trip with my boss and co-workers and for a "little happy" as my Mom says, I made Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in a Jar for everyone. It's a super simple recipe that I found in a Nestle mini recipe book and I LOVE it! Just layer the dry ingredients in a Quart Mason Jar and attach a tag with the wet ingredients needed and baking instructions.

2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup Nestle Toll House Semisweet Chocolate Morsels
1 1/2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup chopped nuts

COMBINE flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Place flour mixture in 1-quart jar. Layer remaining ingredients in order listed above, pressing firmly after each layer. Seal with lid and decorate with fabric and ribbon.

Recipe to Attach:
Beat 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter or margarine, 1 large egg
and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until blended. Add cookie mix; mix well,
breaking up any clumps. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake in preheated 375 F oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
