Cookies in a Jar

Having started the tradition in 2012 with Brownies in a Jar, it continued for Christmas 2013 with Choc Chip Cookies!


I can’t remember where I found the recipe originally!

  • 250g plain flour
  • 3/4tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 335g dark chocolate chips
  • 110g light brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 170g butter
  1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl
  2. In a separate bowl, combine butter, eggs and vanilla essence and beat until creamy. Add to the dry mixture
  3. Drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 190oC oven for 8-10 minutes.

Making the jars

Cookies in a Jar

In a 1 litre glass storage jar (I used IKEA Korken jars), layer the dry ingredients as follows:

  1. Half of the plain flour, plus the bicarbonate of soda
  2. Half of the light brown sugar
  3. The caster sugar
  4. Remaining light brown sugar
  5. Remaining plain flour
  6. Chocolate chips

TIPS: Press down each layer after adding with the end of a rolling pin, and wipe the inside of the jar between layers.

Print a recipe label to stick on the jar. Try to do a better job than I did avoiding creases!

Decorate with curling ribbon to match.
