M & M Jar Cookies

In a clean quart sized mason jar layer:
2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/4 cups red and green M & M's
1 1/4 cups of white sugar

Pack firmly (a wide mouth jar works best.) Screw cap on tightly. Cover lid with holiday material and tie with ribbon, twine or raffia. Attach the recipe below.

Dump contents of jar into a large bowl. Add 1 stick of butter, 1 egg and 1 tsp. of vanilla. Roll dough into a ball and bake on a greased cookie sheet for 12 - 14 minutes at 375*

Note: To make the top of the jar look puffy, add a few cotton balls under the holiday material.
To make the recipe look attractive -Type the recipe on white paper. Glue to colored card stock. Cut decoratively. Punch a hole at the top of the card stock and thread the ribbon through.

Tip: This is an ease recipe to adapt for different holidays. M & M's come in pastel colors for Easter. They also make mini M & M's for a dainty look, which would be good for a Shower favor, or you can stick with the regular M & M's for Anniversary, Birthday or Bosses Day presents.
