National Chocolate Chip Day
How about celebrating chocolate chip day by sharing with a friend? Cookie mixes in a jar are always a nice gift.
For this recipe (from craftbits.com) you will need a jar that holds around 1 quart or 1.130 litres.
If your jar is airtight add the ingredients directly otherwise place them into
an airtight or ziplock bag and attach the recipe card instructions.
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
Combine the flour, baking soda, white sugar, and the chocolate chips. Place 1/2 of
the mixture in a clean quart sized glass jar, and pack firmly. Place the brown
sugar on top, again packing firmly. Place the remaining flour mixture on top. Cover
with a lid.
Empty contents of jar into a large bowl. In separate bowl combine 3/4 cup of
butter, 1 1/2 eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until creamy. Add to dry mixture.
Drop by tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake in a preheated 375
degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Makes 2 dozen.
Here's a cute little tag I made that would be great to adorn your jar.
Instructions for tag:
Gather some paper scraps.
Make tag approximately 4 in by 2 1/2. Use your die cut machine or hand cut a tag.
Cover tag with patterned paper.
Trim two strips the width of your tag with zig zag scissors ( or any decorative edge you prefer.)
Tear a strip of paper from a second patterned paper scrap.
Adhere decorative strips and adhere torn piece over those.
Add die cuts, flowers, chipboard shape, whatever suits your fancy, to the left corner.
Spell "enjoy" with stickers.
Punch hole in top and tie on matching ribbon.
Now tie it to your gift in a jar!
