Nice flavour combination! The first time I made it just as written and it turned out great; my young kids liked it and the adults enjoyed it too. The next time I made it I didn't plan ahead and so quickly boiled & mashed the potatoes and blended the remaining ingredients together, then spread it into an oven pan and baked 20 minutes. Turned out fluffy with a crispy top, and shaved about 40 minutes off the baking time.

Chai Tea Mix
I live in New Zealand and couldn't find non-dairy creamer (vanilla flavoured or otherwise), or instant tea. Not even at the international groceries or the bulk food places -- maybe it's just a North American thing? So I worked around it and am really happy with my substitutions! Stir 1t vanilla into 2C sugar until it's completely blended in. If you have time, spread the vanilla sugar out on a baking tray and allow it to dry for a few hours, then crumble it up with your fingers or in your food processor. But in a pinch you can use it immediately, it just might make the final mixture go a little bit stiff. Sift a 50g packet of coconut cream powder into the sugar (you have to sift this or it will come out in lumps). Add 2C full fat/regular instant milk powder (creamier than skim milk powder). Then add all the spices including 1t nutmeg, 1t allspice and 1/2t white pepper (gives it a lovely bite but not at all spicy). Just make a regular mug of tea and add the mixture -- yum! For my taste, you do need at least 2 tablespoons of the mix for each mug of tea.

Special Butterscotch Chip Cookies in a Jar
Okay, we all agree they're really yummy. And they make absolutely brilliant gifts -- my 3-year-old helped me fill our jars and we gave them to all his friends so they can do some baking with their moms. Now for the important stuff -- how does it look in the jar? I wanted to "pretty it up" a little (and my kids don't like nuts), so I replaced the pecans with 1/2C chopped glace cherries (red & green mixed together) and used white chocolate pieces instead of butterscotch to get a Christmas color scheme. And the order you put things in is critical! Some ingredients just won't lay flat on top of others. Also, it's really hard to get it all to fit in a jar. If you can find a long, narrow, flat-bottomed glass or something similar, use it to press each layer down as hard as you can. Even doing that, I had to cut down on some of the ingredients. So here's what I came up with that works really well: 8: (bottom layer) 1/4C cocoa (we like 'em chocolatey!) 7: 1-1/8C flour, 1/2t baking soda, 1/4t baking powder, 1/4t salt 6: 1C CocoPops -- press! 5: 1/2C brown sugar -- press! 4: 1/2C white sugar 3: 1/2C white chocolate chips -- press! 2: 1/3C cherries (or nuts, if you prefer) 1.(top layer) fill to the top with coconut and press again. I can usually only fit about 1/2 or 3/4C.
