Christmas Cookie Mix in a Jar

Christmas Cookie Mix in a Jar


  • ¾ cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
  • ½ cup white whole wheat flour, spooned into a measuring cup & leveled
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup cooking oats
  • ½ cup M&Ms, red and green
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup white sugar


  1. Start with a 1 quart smooth Ball jar. Layer the ingredients in, like this:
  2. First: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon
  3. Second: oats
  4. Third: M&Ms
  5. Fourth: chocolate chips
  6. Fifth: brown sugar
  7. Sixth: white sugar
  8. Pack each level down really tightly. I mean it. Pack it in. Or else it won’t all fit. The ingredients should be flush to the top of the lid when you seal it up.
  9. Write or print the following instructions on a tag and tie or glue it to the jar:”Add: 1 slightly beaten egg, ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter (melted slightly in the microwave), 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Roll the cookie dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, place on a parchment covered baking sheet. Bake for about 10 -15 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.”
