Here is a post I did last year about some great Christmas gifts.
My daughter also loved to help make these for the younger group in our family. It’s a m&m cookie mix and a Butterfinger cookie mix. These are super easy to put together just like the soup mix from yesterdays post. These recipes come from www.craftbits.com
1 1/4 cups sugar 1 1/4 cups m&ms 2 cups flour mixed with 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp baking powder
Layer in Jar in order given. Pack down firmly. Put tag on that includes:
1. Empty jar mix into a large mixing bowl
2. Add 1 stick butter softened at room temp, 1 egg, and 1 tsp vanilla
3. Mix until blended
4. Shape into balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet 2 in apart. (Do not use wax paper)
5. Bake at 375′ for 12-14 min. until edges are slightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 min. Makes 2 1/2 doz
Butterfinger mix for a 1 qt jar
1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 brown sugar packed, 1 tsp powdered vanilla, 1 tsp baking soda, 2 cups flour and 1 cup chopped butterfingers. Layer in the order given. Add this tag: Cream 1 cup butter and 1 egg together in mixing bowl, then stir in mix. When it is well combined place onto a greased cookie sheet in 2 in drops. Bake at 350′ for 10-12 min.
Here is some of the jars wrapped
