Cranberry-White Chocolate Cookies in a Jar

This mix is pretty in a jar and makes a great gift for those that love to bake. To make it a little more special, combine it with some wooden mixing spoons and some new oven mitts! Just remember to attach a label that gives directions on how to make the cookies!
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chunks
  • 2/3 cup flaked coconut

Mix the flour, baking soda and salt together. And set aside.

Starting with the brown sugar, layer the ingredients in a 1 liter sized glass jar in the order given -- ending with the flour mixture that was premixed. Attach a card with the following directions:

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line one baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. Empty the contents of the jar into a large bowl. Using a wooden spoon blend the mixture until well combined.
    3. Using you hands work in 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    4. Beat 1 egg with 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 cup milk. Still using your hands or a wooden spoon blend the egg mixture into the dough until well combined.
    5. Drop teaspoon sized mounds 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 14 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Place cookies on a rack to finish cooling. Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.

Give as housewarming or holiday gifts as needed and watch the smiles pour in.
