Fun Jar Cookies

Guest Author - Gillian Scianna

I love a great recipe for a jar. These recipes are no exception. They make great gift or perfect to keep in the cupboard at home....for just that drop in occasion.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1-3/4 cups flour mixed with 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. baking soda

8 large Reese's peanut butter cups candies cut into 1/2 inch pieces (wrap in plastic wrap)

Layer ingredients in jar in order given. Press each layer firmly in place before adding next ingredient.

Recipe to attach to jar:
Remove candies from jar and set aside. Empty cookie mix in large mixing bowl; stir to combine. Add 3/4 cup softened butter, 2 eggs slightly beaten and 1 tsp. vanilla; mix until completely blended. Stir in candies. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls. Place 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.


Orange Cookies

1/2 cups brown sugar
1 Tbsp. dried grated orange rind
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions:

1. Combine flour, baking powder and orange rind - stir well. Place flour mixture in a clean mason jar. Pack down tight so everything will fit in the jar. (Use a spoon or a mallet.) Add other ingredients, one item at a time, packing each layer down.

2. Put the lid on the jar and tie a ribbon around the lid. You can add a personalized label, if you wish. As an added touch, tie a wooden spoon to the lid with a piece of ribbon.

Recipe to attach to jar:
Whip 1 cup of butter or shortening until light and fluffy.
Add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 tsp. vanilla and beat until mixed. Stir in the ingredients from this jar until well combined.
Drop teaspoons of dough on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees F.
You can ice these with a thin icing made of 1 cup icing sugar and enough orange juice to make the icing spreadable.

Hot Chocolate Camping Mix

Ingredients
10 1/2 C. Non-Fat Dry Milk
4 C. Confectioner's Sugar
4 1/4 C. Chocolate Mix for Milk (Nestle's Quick)
2 3/4 C. Non-Dairy Powdered Creamer
1/2 tsp Salt

Combine all ingredients and store in an air-tight container. This recipe will yield approximately 8 pint size gift jars. For camping I save small coffee tins. This is great for picnic baskets. A treat while away.


Recipe to attach to jar:
Combine 3 heaping tablespoons of cocoa mix into hot water or milk
