Cookie Mix Recipes
Delicious cookie mix recipes...at your very fingertips! Assemble one of these cookie mixes in a jar for a special gift, or stash it away for future use. They are so much fun to surprise people with!
*Cookie mixes in a jar contain only dry ingredients; you do not need to can them. They will not spoil.
*Use a clean, very dry quart jar for these mixes. If the jar has any moisture in it at all, the cookie mix will go stale.
*Follow the cookie mix recipes exactly. Since all of the ingredients need to fit in a quart jar, it's essential that you measure each ingredient exactly. You don't want to run out of room!
*Layer carefully. As each layer is added, take time to pack it down tightly and evenly. Some helpful tools for this part are mini ice cream scoopers or small ladles.
