Last Minute Gift – Chunky Chocolate Cookie Mix


Here it is…crunch time. The day after tomorrow is Christmas and the excitement in the air is nearly palpable. The tree is trimmed, the turkey is thawed, the gifts are…

CRAP! GIFTS! I forgot to get a gift for my neighbor/cousin/UPS guy/hairdresser/random person at my door!

I need something quick, something that doesn’t require a trip to a store. Food! I am NOT baking another confection today. A MIX! PERFECT! Mason jar, pretty fabric, clever tag, VOILA!

Whew….

Merry Christmas!

Chunky Chocolate Cookie Mix
recipe from Gooseberry Patch Christmas Book 3

1 1/4 c. AP Flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2t. salt
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1/3 c. sugar
1 1/3 cup chocolate chunks
1 c. chopped pecans ( these are optional, I didn’t use them I just added more chocolate )

Blend together flour, soda, and salt. Spoon into bottom of wide mouth Mason jar, press down well. Layer on the remaining ingredients in the order given, packing tightly after each layer.

Attach these instructions:
2/3 c. butter, softened
1 egg
1 t. water
1/2 t. vanilla extract

Cream together butter, water, and vanilla. Add cookie mix and blend well. Drop by spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen.
P.S. You can find Gooseberry Patch Books everywhere, even the library. If you can’t find this one and would like this tag for your mix send me an email and I will send it to you friend to friend. Out of respect for Gooseberry Patch, I won’t post it here. 🙂
