Giving Homemade Mixes in a Jar
By Monica Resinger
_http://homemakersjournal.com_ ( 
Mixes in a jar are thoughtful and inexpensive gifts to give to anyone for  
any occasion. The idea is to layer dry ingredients of a cookie, cake, biscuit,  
muffin, beverage or other recipe decoratively in a jar and add directions of 
how  to complete the recipe. The jar can be a mason jar or a recycled, clean  
mayonnaise or other large jar that has a lid and can then be decorated with  
fabric, ribbons, paint, etc. 
I have seen these jars of mixes sell in retail stores for around $8.00!  
Imagine the savings if you were to make your own! A few inexpensive ingredients 
like flour, brown sugar, chocolate chips and a jar don't cost very much! Gift  
recipients will love receiving a homemade mix from you so they can easily  
prepare a treat to enjoy and when they prepare the treat, they'll be thinking 
how thoughtful you are. 
Mixes in a jar are excellent for gifts that need to be shipped because you  
don't have to worry about baked goods getting smashed or getting stale. A mix  
will allow the gift recipient to freshly prepare the treat when it is craved 
or  needed. They are also great to give to children's teachers, neighbors and  
acquaintances because of the ease and money savings involved. 
Here is a delicious mix recipe for you to try:
Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Mix in a Jar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups packed confectioners' sugar
3/4  cup cocoa
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon  salt
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Layer
ingredients in order given in a 1 quart wide mouth canning jar. Clean  the 
of the jar with a dry paper towel after adding the confectioners'  sugar and
after adding the cocoa powder. Be sure to pack everything down  firmly before
adding the flour mixture, it will be a tight fit. Store in a  cool dry place 
from a heat source so condensation and clumping does not  occur.
Instructions to attach to Jar:
Peanut Butter Cookies
Empty jar of cookie mix into large mixing bowl. Thoroughly blend  mix.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1  egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla.
Mix until completely blended. Shape into walnut sized balls and place 2  
apart on a parchment lined baking sheets. Press balls down with a  fork. Bake 
at 350F degrees for 9 to 11 minutes until edges are browned. Cool 5  minutes 
on baking sheet then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Makes  3
