Butterscotch Chip Cookie Mix

By Sharon Ng

I love receiving jar mixes. Mixes are such an easy way to do a meal or treat preparation, and it's a great gift when we are receiving lots of baked goods, because it doesn't need to be eaten right away. Jar mixes are also great because they can sit and wait until they are needed, don't require frig space and make life easier. Here is a new recipe I came across for Butterscotch Chip Cookies, and they are winners! This recipe comes courtesy of Family Circle. (see recipe below)

I thought that the container these were packaged in was really cute, and I have seen similar containers at craft or hobby stores. There is nothing wrong with packing into a mason jar however. Adding a bow or a cute fabric topper (about an inch and a half larger than the jar and set in between the jar lid and ring, before screwing the lid on) make the gift in a jar are simple ways to wrap the gift without much work.

Dry Mix:
In large bowl, blend flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In smaller bowl, stir together half of this flour mixture and the cocoa powder so cocoa is partially mixed in.

Layer dry mix ingredients in jar:
Spoon flour-cocoa mixture into bottom of jar; press down very hard to compact (a small spice jar works well for compacting). Spoon plain flour mixture on top of flour-cocoa mixture; compact. Continue layering with dark-brown sugar, light-brown sugar and granulated sugar, compacting each layer. Top with butterscotch chips. Seal jar tightly. Store up to 2 weeks at cool room temperature.

Prepare instructions for using mix:

Drop dough by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart, onto a greased baking sheet. Bake in 350 degrees F oven for 12 to 13 minutes or until firm. Cool on baking sheet on wire rack for 1 minute. Remove cookies to rack and let cool completely.
