Homemade Holiday Gift: Oatmeal-Raisin Cookie Jar
Instead of passing out cookies this year, try gifting a DIY cookie kit. Pre-measured dry ingredients, plus a few extras make baking a batch of oatmeal cookies a cinch.
Equipment: 1 sheet parchment paper, 1-quart glass jar or other container with lid, recipe card with baking instructions
Add ingredients to the jar in order, starting with flour and ending with raisins. To get them into the jar more easily, first measure on to a piece of parchment paper. Use the parchment to gently transfer each layer into the jar. Cover.
Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Combine all ingredients to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and mix until just combined.
Drop small mounds of dough onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer to a baking rack and cool completely. Makes 30 small or 15 large cookies.
