|Cowboy Cookies in a Jar Recipe|
A couple of weekends ago, my friend Lindsey and I threw a baby shower for our friend Bethany. Bethany is expecting her first baby in May and I'm so excited! She has the cutest round baby bump and you can tell being a mother comes naturally to her. She even has that motherly glow people talk about. I'm a little jealous of Bethany because while I was pregnant, all I got was the "pregnancy sweat" and cankles! I was like a human heater with no ankles!
For the shower, Lindsey and I put our brains together (aka skimmed Pinterest) and found several great ideas and inspirations. Below is the recipe we used for the cookies in a jar in case you want to use them for your future party!
Cowboy Cookies in a Jar Recipe
Inspired by Bakerella
Layer the following ingredients in a mason jar, packing each layer as you go:
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooking oats
3/4 cup m&ms
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
optional: 1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans (the amount you use will depend on how tight you packed the previous ingredients)
On the jar, make sure to attach the following directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir dry ingredients in a large bowl and add:
1/2 cup butter (almost melted),
1 slightly beaten egg,
& 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls & bake for 10 minutes.
|These were made with red and green M&Ms, perfect for Christmas!|
