I saw this idea on Susan Itell's Simple Stampin' blog, and ran with it.
So after washing and drying the jars (thoroughly!), I filled them with the following:
1-3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup white sugar
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
Next I added some sparkly washi tape around the lid of the jar:
A piece of Silver Foil is under the lacy cut out of the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies in Elegant Eggplant. The stamp is from Here's to Cheers--stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and again using an Elegant Eggplant marker and just highlighting "Scrumptious".
The tag was tied to the printed directions to make the cookies using ribbon from the 3/8" Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack.
The directions say:
Empty contents of jar into a large bowl.
In separate bowl, combine 3/4 cup of butter (use the real stuff), 1 egg and 1 yolk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until cream. Add to the dry mixture.
Drop by tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake ina a preheated 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Cool on a rack, grab some milk and enjoy!
Try this the next time you need a small gift. It was a huge hit among my coworkers!
