Dreamsicle Cookies in a Jar

With our economy still trying to bounce back, many of us are cutting back a little this holiday season.  One nice gift that just about everyone loves is the Recipe in a Jar.  This is where most of the ingredients for a nice soup or dessert is layered in a quart jar and topped with a pretty lid.  The instructions on how to prepare the recipe is attached.  There are numerous recipes out there, and just about all of them sound really good.  Today I am posting the instructions for Dreamsicle Cookies in a Jar, with thanks to the website

 Dreamsicle Cookies in a Jar: 


1/2 c. Tang powdered orange drink

3/4 c. sugar

1 3/4 c. flour, sifted before measuring

1/2 t. baking soda

1/2 t. baking powder

1 quart wide-mouth canning jar with lid and ring

1 1/2 c. vanilla baking chips

Stir together the flour, baking soda and baking powder.  Then layer the ingredients into the jar: Sugar, Tang, flour mixture then the vanilla chips. Tamp the first 3 layers firmly before adding the chips.

Here are the instructions to attach to the jar:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Empty jar into large bowl and add 1/2 c. softened butter, 1 slightly-beaten egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla.  Mix until well-blended.

Form dough into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on slightly-greased baking sheet.  Bake for 12-14 minutes or until cookies are slightly browned.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
