Cookies in a Jar


Now that black Friday has arrived, the Christmas season has offically begun.  White chocolate is the theme for this week and since it is Christmastime, I thought of this great recipe that tastes wonderful and can be given as a gift too.  I have given these as gifts and baked them for my family too. I think they taste great and the rice crispies in them give them a crunch that I love.  They are so easy to assemble and you can use your creative touch on ribbon and instruction cards for the jars.  Have fun with it!

1 qt jars
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup crisp rice cereal
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup white sugar

In a 1 quart jar, layer the ingredients in the order listed.  Pack down firmly after each addition.

Attach a tag that reads:  Cream 1/2 cup margarine or butter, add 1 egg and 2 T water.  Combine.  Add the entire contents of the jar and stir until blended.  Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto an unprepared cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.

Sometimes my pictures are fuzzy.  I'm working on it but not sure why it happens.
