That’s what we made at homework club on Wednesday.
I had to make a trip to the hardware store to stock up on these
and then ran them all through the dishwasher
Totally worth three loads of dishes!
I was a little apprehensive…but the kids did awesome! They enjoyed measuring out the ingredients and were super possessive over their mixes when they were all done. I had the following conversation multiple times.
“Mrs. Leah, where is my jar thing”
“I put them all in a box and you will get them when you leave”
“Yeah, but where are they”
“Babe you can’t have it until you leave…it’s glass and I don’t want it to get broken”
“ But where is it”
They wanted to be able to see it and touch it just to make sure it was safe I suppose. Gotta love them!
Below is the recipe incase you want to put together a cookie mix for your mom…Mother’s Day is Sunday…just incase you forgot!
I am baking up a batch right now and they turned out pretty darn good! In case you are just tuning in…I have issues when it comes to making a good cookie. I was worried about this recipe because you don’t cream the sugar and butter. Obviously you don’t have to tho…cause these turned out beautiful.
In order, the following goes into a mason jar
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Give it a stir with a butter knife then add
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar (pack it down as far as possible so that you can fit lots of chocolate chips)
Last, add as many chocolate chips as will fit.
Don’t forget to add the following directions on a tag to go along with the mix!
- 1 cup butter or margarine softened
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Thoroughly blend together the butter or margarine, the egg, and the vanilla. Empty jar of cookie mix into the butter mixture. Mix until completely blended. Drop teaspoons full of batter about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Uggg…I am full on cookies and can’t eat all my dinner. I think I could fit another cookies though ;)
