Cookie Mix Jar

Cookie Mix Jar

Ingredients: 

1 ½ cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1 cup Holiday M&M’s or chocolate chips, see note

⅓ cup light brown sugar, packed

½ cup granulated sugar

1-quart Mason jar

Instructions: 

Assembling jars:

  1. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Pour into the bottom of a 1-quart mason jar (I rolled up a paper plate to use as a funnel).
  3. Top the flour mixture with M&M’s, dropping them in lightly, so that they don’t sink into the flour.
  4. Top the M&M’s with brown sugar, and then granulated sugar (use a spoon to carefully scoop the sugars into the jar).
  5. Seal with the lid and decorate with ribbon and fabric (see note)

Recipe to include with the jar:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk ½ cup of melted and cooled unsalted butter, 1 large egg, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
  2. Add the contents of the jar and gently stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined (dough will be crumbly).
  3. Chill for 30 minutes. Form golf ball sized portions of dough, pressing firmly as you form the ball.
  4. Place the dough balls onto lined baking sheets.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes, until the edges are set and the centers of the cookies are still slightly underdone.
  6. Place baking sheets on a rack to cool.

Fiber loves water and your recipes will too. You may notice your recipes will need a little more liquid (water, milk, or fruit juice) when using our flour.

For breads, rolls, and other yeast-raised baked goods: Increase liquids ¼ cup (60g) at a time until you reach the desired dough consistency.

For cookies: Increase liquids 1 tbs. (15g) at a time until you reach the desired batter or dough consistency.

For brownies, quick-breads, muffins, pancakes, waffles, pie crusts and more: Increase liquids 2 tbs. (30g) at a time until you reach the desired batter or dough consistency.
