Cookie-in-a-jar Mix

Gift the gift of the aroma of freshly baked cookies. Instead of gifting already made cookies, give your own custom cookie-in-a-jar mix, as Elana Amsterdam of Elana’s Pantry does. One of her favorite gifts, her high-protein, gluten-free cookie mix is easy to make into cookies, and a perfect homemade gift for shipping.

Cookie Baking Instructions

Place dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Pour wet ingredients over dry and mix well to combine.

Press balls to flatten.

Let cool for 20 minutes and serve.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
