      Gift Sized Gourmet Cookie Mix

      1 cup all-purpose Flour
      1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
      1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
      1-1/4 cups Rolled Oats
      1 single serving size Milk Chocolate Bar (size can vary)
      1/2 cup White Sugar
      1/2 cup Brown Sugar
      1/2 cup chopped Nuts, your choice (optional)
      1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

      In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Layer
      ingredients in order given in a quart size canning jar. Mix oatmeal in a
      blender.

      Grate chocolate bar and mix into the oatmeal. It is helpful to tap
      jar lightly on a padded surface (towel on counter) as you layer ingredients
      to make all ingredients fit neatly. Use scissors to cut a 9 inch-diameter
      circle from fabric of your choice.

      Center fabric circle over lid and secure
      with a rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover the rubber band.
      Attach a card with the following directions:

      Gourmet Cookies

      Remove chocolate chips and nuts 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 racks to finish cooling.

      Yield: 3 dozen

      Gift Sized Sugar Cookie Mix

      2 cups Flour
      2 tsp. Baking Soda
      1 tsp. Salt
      2 cups Sugar

      In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Layer ingredients in
      jar in order given in a 1 quart canning jar. It is helpful to tap jar
      lightly on a padded surface (towel on counter) as you layer ingredients to
      make all ingredients fit neatly.

      Use scissors to cut a 9 inch-diameter
      circle from fabric of your choice. Center fabric circle over lid and secure
      with a rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover the rubber band.

      Sugar Cookies

      Empty cookie mix into large mixing bowl. Stir mix with large wooden spoon to
      evenly distribute ingredients. Add 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup vegetable
      shortening, 2 eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

      Mix until completely blended but
      do not beat with electric mixer. Mixture will be thick, so you may need to
      use a wooden spoon to finish mixing. Roll out onto floured surface and cut
      shapes, or shape into walnut sized balls, then roll in sugar and place onto
      a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart.

      Flatten sugar coated cookies with
      bottom of a glass drinking glass. Bake at 350 degrees F for 7 to 10 minutes
      until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet and then
      place cookies on baking racks to finish cooling.

      Yield: 3 dozen cookies

      Note: To keep sugar cookies soft 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.
