Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in a Jar

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 Mix the salt and baking soda in with the flour, then layer the ingredients into the jar. Use scissors to cut a 9 inch-diameter circle from calico. Place over lid and secure with rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover rubber band.

2 Enclose a card with the following mixing and baking directions:

3 Chocolate Chip Cookies Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

4 Sift dry ingredients through a colander to separate the chocolate chips from other ingredients.

5 Beat 1 cup of unsalted butter or margarine in a medium bowl. Beat sifted ingredients into butter until blended.

6 In a small bowl, beat 1 egg with 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

7 Mix beaten egg mixture into butter mixture until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

8 Drop teaspoonfuls of batter, spaced well apart, onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes 4 dozen cookies.

It helps to pack each layer down to make all the contents fit in the jar. These make great gifts!
