If you are looking for a last minute gift for someone here is a recipe that I used as a gift for a few friends this year. Or you could always just make the cookies!
1 wide-mouth quart (4-cup) canning jars with lid and rings
3/4 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup white sugar
3/4 Cup butterscotch baking chips
2 Cup rolled oats
1 Cup all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1. In large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Layer ingredients in order given in canning jars, layering flour mixture last.
2. Cut appropriate amount of 7-inch circles from cotton fabric. Top each jar with fabric circle, and tie with ribbon.
3. Be sure to write the directions out on a gift tag and attach to jar with a pretty ribbon.
Recipe Instructions (include on gift tag):
Empty mix into large mixing bowl, mix thoroughly. Add 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened, 1 beaten egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix until completely blended. Form 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until edges are lightly browned, about 10-12 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Makes 3 dozen cookies.
