Normally I try to keep all of my content on this blog fashion-related, but I just had to share this sweet and simple cookie jar gift idea. I love to bake, I love the holidays and I love DIYs, so why not combine them all? This gift would be perfect for your parents, your teacher or as a Secret Santa gift.
The first thing you’ll need to do is mix together a few dry ingredients. In a bowl, combine 1 + 1/3 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and ¼ teaspoon of salt.
Now it’s time to start layering in a one-quart canning jar:
- 1. Flour mixture
- 2. One cup of old-fashioned oats
- 3. One cup of holiday M&Ms
- 4. 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of regular sugar
Once you’ve neatly layered all the ingredients, twist on the cap and decorate your jar with cute ribbons. Don’t forget to add a tag with instructions on how to make the cookies!
Mix with one egg, ½ cup melted butter, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Shape into balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
