Father's Day Cookie Jars

It's always fun for a child to make a special gift for their Dad on Father's Day, and there is no better gift than a sweet treat. I love this tasty alternative to socks, ties and underwear! Today, I am sharing the recipe and instructions for making this adorable Father's Day cookie mix in a jar.



To make a Father's Day jar of cookie mix:

1) You'll need to start with a clean 1L mason jars.

2) Then, you'll need to layer the ingredients below (patting down each layer before adding the next one):

First layer: 1 3/4 cups flour, 3/4 tsp baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon salt
Second layer: 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
Third layer: 1/2 white sugar
Fourth layer: 1 1/2 cups quality, semi-sweet chocolate chips

To make the process easy: use a wide-mouthed funnel to fill the jars, and make a tool to press down the layers. I attached a round piece of cardboard to the end of skewer and covered it all with tin foil.


3) Then, print off the cookie tags below and attach it to the cookie jar with twine or yarn.
