"This is a cookie mix with an attached tag which gives the directions on how to prepare the mix and bake the cookies. Seasonal fabric or a particular kitchen decorating color scheme used for the cloth topper makes the jar attractive enough to display on a baker's rack until it is ready to be used."

1 1/8 cups

high protein crisp rice and wheat cereal
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!
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!
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!
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!
