Mixes In Jars #5 – Dried Cranberry Vanilla Chip Cookie

Who doesn’t love cookies?  Here at our house cookies are probably the most requested treat.  It surpasses ice cream, cake, candy, even brownies.  So when it comes to finding new recipes to keep the troops from getting bored, I am always on the lookout.

A few nights ago the kids wanted something sweet to eat.  I took advantage of the opportunity to try a new mix in jars recipe.  These recipes allow me to whip up a batch of cookies quickly and doesn’t leave us with six dozen cookies.  We had 2 1/2 dozen cookies to enjoy, which means in a day or two I can try another kind.

Dried Cranberry Vanilla Chip Cookies

  • 3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/4 Cup Craisins/Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 Cup Vanilla Chips
  • 1 3/4 Cups Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Cup Softened Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla

Combine dry ingredients, chips, and cranberries.  Mix thoroughly.  Add softened butter, egg, and vanilla.  Mix until completely blended, I did this with my hands. Shape into walnut size balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 for 10 – 12 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool on sheet 1 minute.

To assemble mix in jar, layer dry ingredients in above order and attach tag:

Empty mix into large bowl.  Mix to combine.  Add 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 egg, and 1 tsp. vanilla.  Mix until completely blended. Shape into walnut size balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 – 12 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool on sheet 1 minute.

These are a new family favorite.  The bulk of the cookies were gone the night I made them and the remainder the next day.  Definitely a keeper.  Now I can experiment with another cookie in a day or two, and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
