Description

Cute cookie mix gift for girls.

Ingredients

  • DRY INGREDIENTS:
  • 1-⅓ cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Cooking Oats
  • ¾ cups M&Ms®
  • ¾ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar, Packed
  • ½ cups White Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Chopped Pecans
  • WET INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 whole Egg, Slightly Beaten
  • ½ cups Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preparation

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Add wet ingredients and use the back of a large spoon to mix it all together.

You may need to use your hands to get everything incorporated.

Roll the cookie dough into 1 1/2 inch balls.

Place on a parchment covered baking sheet.

Bake for about 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.

Enjoy!

TO MAKE COOKIE MIXES: pack the dry ingredients in a quart size jar in this order: flour (mixed with baking powder, baking soda and salt), oats, M&M’S®, chocolate chips, brown sugar, white sugar and chopped pecans. Pack each layer down really firm to make everything fit. Add a note on how to add the wet ingredients and baking instructions and then give to someone special.

Thank you so much for this idea/recipe. They are very cute. I made up several of them for my friends for Christmas gifts this year.

I just made a batch and baked them….they are delicious! I questioned how they would turn out, the dough had to be worked into balls to stay together, but they turned out GREAT! Made them with Valentine’s M&M’s. Super cute.

I made 23 of these jars to take to a charity fundraiser. They are super cute.

I then made a double batch of the cookies, and sold them at a bake sale.

Every year during the holidays I like to try lots of new cookie recipes. Of the 6-7 I tried this year, these were hands down the family favorite! Everyone loved them and made me promise to make them again and again…

I made the recipe before I handed out the made up jars and they are excellent cookies.

I made these for Christmas gifts, substituting white chocolate chips for the chocolate chips and Craisins for the M&Ms. They not only looked impressive in the jars, but they were absolutely delicious! Everyone who got a jar of these told me that they were the best cookies they’ve ever made!

I made these for Christmas gifts this past year. I loved how they looked, but I was a little skeptical about how they would taste. Of course I had to make a test batch before I delivered my mason jars to family and friends. Much to my surprise, it was a surprisingly good cookie. Cowgirl cookies are on my perfect gifts list from here on out.
