Original recipe makes 2 dozen Change Servings


  1. Layer the ingredients in the order given in a one quart wide mouth canning jar. Firmly pack each ingredient in place. It will be a tight fit, but all ingredients will fit in the jar. Use pinking shears to cut an 8 or 9 inch circle from gingham, calico, or a seasonal fabric. Place the fabric over the wide mouth lid and rim and secure with a rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover the rubber band. Attach a card to the ribbon or raffia with the following mixing and baking directions:
  2. Empty jar of cookie mix into a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup of butter or margarine, 1 egg, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Use hands to mix the wet and dry ingredients together. When completely blended, roll into large walnut sized balls. Place on unprepared cookie sheets and use the palm of your hand to flatten each cookie ball. Bake at 350 in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.

My daughter made these for gifts for friends and teachers at school. We baked our own batch to test them and they were excellent!

I prepared this cookie in a jar recipe as gifts for Christmas. Everyone who received a jar asked me for the recipe. They're delicious!

I made these for Christmas gifts and the cookies were great! I used rice crispies for the cereal and put it in a clear baggie on the top to keep the cereal crisp. The people who used the cookies said they were so easy and the cookies were delicious. These are a great gift!

These were some of the BEST cookies I ever made using this recipe as an outline I modified it, while making the "test batch". I put all the dry ingredients into a bowl in this order: 1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup white sugar 1 cup flaked coconut 1 cup cocoa pebbles (chocolate rice krispies) 3/4 cup chocolate chips 4 tablespoons cocoa powder Mix dry ingredients with hand beater, add 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 egg & 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix well with beater, form with hands into walnut sized balls, slightly flattened. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. They taste like chocolate macaroon cookies...I am definatley going to make these for gifts this year!

Made as directed with seasonal fabric and it DOES make a beautiful gift. I made them for the volunteers at the church. They were well received AND delicious, too. Now it's October '07 and I'm getting ready to make these as gifts again. So what does that tell ya? MAKE THE RECIPE!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

My sister gave me this recipe in a jar about 5 years ago and I have been making them every year since! These don't look like they will bake up correctly when you put them on the pan but they come out perfect every time. DELICIOUS!

These cookies were great. Very nice texture; not to soft or crunchy. I used 2 cups instead of 1 1/8 cups flour. The first time, the cookies had no shape at all.

These cookies are fantastic! I have made these several times, and they always turn out perfectly. I usually use Special-K cereal (crushed), but corn flakes work equally as well. Whenever I want to bake an extra special cookie for friends or family, this is the recipe I use!
