Recyling for the Holidays
I have been stockpiling my Sarabeth's jam jars from the IGA for awhile now, and this morning I filled them with cookie mixes to give as gifts. This one has the ingredients (minus some butter, and egg yolk, and a little vanilla) for Cranberry-Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate Chips. Here's the recipe:
Cranberry-Oatmeal Cookies in a Jar
Makes about 12 cookies
6 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons white chocolate chips
1. Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spoon into a 1-pint Mason jarSpoon oats on top of flour mixture. Spoon in cranberries. Spoon in brown sugar and granulated sugar. Spoon in white chocolate chips.
2. Attach a card to your jar with the following instructions: "Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour contents of this jar into a large bowl and combine with 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter, 1 egg yolk, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto ungreased baking sheets and bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes."
