Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in a Jar
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Time for family and friends and gift-giving, oh my! This year, if you want to warm up the kitchen and make some delicious treats to give as gifts, I have several recommendations … like my world-famous (well, they’re famous in my circle of family/friends) Homemade Marshmallows, my go-to classic Pignoli Cookies, our editor’s favorites – Good Fortune Cookies and Cherry Pistachio Chocolates, the kid-favorite Santa’s Thumbprint Cookies, and this adorable new recipe for Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in a Jar.
This cookie mix lets you give the recipient a gift that they can then bake with their kids or whip up on a cold winter’s night when they need something comforting. What’s even better about this is that you can have fun decorating the jar with ribbon and a cute label with the baking directions written on it.
And perhaps the best part is that it uses pretty standard baking ingredients that you might already have a supply of, like baking soda, salt, and sugar. The only things you might need to buy are jars, chocolate chips, and a good-quality gluten-free all-purpose flour.
You’ve probably heard me say it before but I’ll say it again … the best gifts are those that are homemade!
- 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 1-quart Mason jar with lid
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup brown sugar packed
Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Place half the mixture into the jar, packing it well. Add half the chocolate chips on top. Add the brown sugar, pack firmly. Add the remaining chocolate chips and seal the jar.
Write out a label with baking instructions to include with the jar.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together ¾ cup room temperature butter, 2 large eggs at room temperature, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until fluffy. Empty the contents of the jar into the bowl and mix. Drop tablespoons of the dough onto the baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on the pans. Enjoy!
