Yield 2 dozen

Layer the ingredients for these yummy, peppermint-y cookies in a jar and include directions for a fun gift.


Needed for mixing recipe:


  1. In a quart size jar, layer ingredients in the order given. The brown sugar can be placed in a resealable bag to keep it separate.

Mixing directions:

  1. Beat butter with an electric mixer. Add the brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add the egg and beat again for 1-2 minutes. Add the vanilla and beat 30 seconds more. Add the remaining ingredients from the jar a little at a time, mixing well.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a small ice cream scoop or two spoons, drop dough onto the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating baking sheets back to front and top to bottom half way through baking time for even baking. Let cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes, then remove from baking sheet and finish cooling on rack. Store in airtight container.
