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.
