Raisin Crunch Cookie Mix in a Jar 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Christmas is about giving, and what better way than to give someone something that you put your thought, time and handmade touch into. Here are some great small gift ideas that can go a long way. In some recipes, the ingredients are all layered in a clear glass jar so that each layer is distinct, giving it the look of "sand art." If you're going for this layered look, the ingredients need to have different colors and textures. A sugar cookie mix made with white sugar and white flour is not going to show up well as layers
Packing 'em In. Most of the cookie and brownie varieties of mix-in-a-jar recipes will fit into a 1-quart or 1-liter wide-mouth canning jar, as long as you pack the ingredients in as tightly as possible.
• After placing one ingredient in the jar, press it down with a utensil with a fairly wide flat bottom (a long-handled tart tamper works especially well). Do this after each ingredient, especially after adding things like brown sugar, flour, oats, nuts, confectioners' sugar, cocoa powder, shredded coconut, and dried fruits. • White sugar will seep down into layered items like colored candies, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. It's better to put white sugar below these ingredients. • All-purpose flour and confectioners' sugar also have the same seeping problem, so put them on the bottom, too. • The layers will stand out most if you pack the highly contrasting items next to each other.


Ingredients:
• 1/2 cup white sugar
• 1/2 cup raisins
• 1 1/4 cups flaked coconut
• 1 cup cornflakes cereal, crumbled
• 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
• 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
• 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

mixed with:

• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon baking powder


Directions:
Layer the ingredients into a 1 quart canning jar in the order they are listed. Press each layer firmly in place before adding next ingredients. it will be a tight fit. Attach a label with the following instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Empty the contents of the jar into a large bowl and use your hands to blend thoroughly.
Stir in 1/2 cup butter, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Mix until completely blended. You may need to use your hands. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and place them 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Shelve It
If stored in a cool, dry, and dark place, your gift can last for up to 6 months, as long as all of the ingredients used to make it were fresh. (Make sure your baking powder and baking soda aren't going to expire anytime soon.) If the mix contains nuts, it should be used within 3 months.

Wellness Tip
Storing Olive Oil
According to our registered dietitian, you can keep an open bottle of olive oil for several months. Store it away from light and heat, in a tightly sealed container. If you store olive oil in the refrigerator it will turn cloudy, but this will not affect its flavor or quality. Substituting olive oil for other fats can be a heart healthy cooking strategy!

Double Mint Chocolate Squares

Description: These are great for Valentines or Christmas. You can leave out the food colouring if you like but they won’t have that visual wow factor. Green for Christmas and red for Valentines Day. I like to keep them in the fridge for a cool mint treat.
