1 & a 1/4 cup of sugar
1 & a 1/4 cup of M & M candies (Use the pretty Christmas coloured M & M's for the holidays)
2 cups of flour mixed with a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
Layer the ingredients in order given in a 1 quart "wide mouth" canning jar. It will be a tight fit when you add the flour mixture, so be sure to pack everything down firm.
Instructions to attach to jar:
1.) Empty jar of cookie mix into a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to thoroughly blend mix.
2.) Add: 1 stick of margarine or butter softened at room temperature (DO NOT USE DIET MARGARINE), 1 egg, slightly beaten, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
3.) Mix until completely blended. You will need to finish mixing this with your hands.
4.) Shape into balls the size of walnuts and place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet 2" inches apart. DO NOT USE WAXED PAPER.
5.) Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 to 14 minutes until edges are slightly browned. Cool on a cookie sheet for about 5 minutes then remove to wire racks to finish cooling.
Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
