Cookie & brownie mixes in jars from Real Food for Real People


Gift Sized Mixes


Below are some very fun
recipes for Cookie & Brownie Mixes in jars.  These are not like the Pint Sized
Cakes, which are actually baked in the jars.  These are mixes, similar to the mixes
you would buy in a store.  These mixes are unique because first, they are made by
You, and second, they are layered in the jars and are quite decorative once they have been
completed.  You can decorate them as the recipes suggest, or use your
imagination. 

These make wonderful gifts for the
holidays, or to welcome a new neighbor into your area.  Please remember that the
ingredients have been measured to fit exactly into quart sized jars, so please do not vary
the measurements.  A good source of jars for these recipes, is to wash and save
mayonnaise jars.  They are the perfect size, and this will be a great way to recycle
as well.  Enjoy!

with a large spoon. Empty cookie mix into large mixing bowl. Stir mix with large wooden
spoon to evenly distribute ingredients. Add 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine, 1 egg
and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix until completely blended. Mixture will be thick, so you may
need to use a wooden spoon to finish mixing. Shape into walnut sized balls and place onto
a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes until
edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet and then place cookies on baking

large mixing bowl. Stir mix with large wooden spoon to evenly distribute ingredients. Add

after baking, add a loaf pan with 2 inches of water to bottom of oven (don’t let it
touch elements) while baking, and then store in an airtight container.
