Actual Cookie Made From Mix

Oatmeal-Chip Cookie Mix In A Jar

I am a mason jar nut. This past holiday season (2002), we gave these as gifts--I made 14 jars and had one left. When I tested the recipe, I was a little skeptical that they would be a really good cookie. The results??? The test batch didn't last long.

I made labels using Print Artist and used a tacky glue stick to attach them--the label removes easily after the mix is used. Top with tan craft paper, cut into rounds and tie with raffia. Be sure to use wide mouth quart jars without any embossing on one side so that the label is smooth.
