I made up these jars last Christmas for my husband to give his co-workers. I substituted holiday (red & green) M&M's for the choc. chips and they really were beautiful. They take some time to put together but they are well worth the effort...and they're yummy too. Read More

Maybe I did something wrong but mine turned out awful. They spread too thin and I had a tough time getting them off the cookie sheet. I did use quick oats instead of rolled. Could that be the difference? And the recipe simply said corn flakes. Was I supposed to crush them first. If I try again I'll make these two changes and report back. Read More

I received a jar of this mix from some friends of ours.Having never made cookies from a jar I was worried about the dryness of the finished dough but they turned out GREAT! I absolutely LOVE the flavor and texture of these cookies! I couldn't stop eating them! I did find the brown sugar was a little hard when I emptied out the jar but I just broke it up between my fingers. I'll be making this recipe for myself and for gifts. Read More

We made this as a 4H project very easy and fun. The kids decorated the jar lids with fabric and raffia. We had the cookies for a snack. We had great reviews from parents and friends who received them as gifts. Read More

What a fun activity to do with kids. I attatched a list of ingredients the wet ingredients to add and baking details to it and sent it home as a back-yard day camp baking project. We added some M&M's in place of 1/2 the chocolate chips to add more color to the mix - and cookies! Read More
