Give the gift of baking with Jar Bake Mix
SWEET COOKIE JAR MIX
This year the kids and I have decided to give our family and neighbours a Biscuit Jar mix. Our time spent in the kitchen is probably no more than the time spent gift-hunting online or at the mall and it’s a great way to get the kids involved and baking is fun!
Plus the gift of food is personal, easy on the environment, and not likely to go to waste. Gifts from the kitchen are always appreciated. Homemade is heartfelt. Your time and energy, and culinary creativity, are just as valued as that store-bought gift which they may not really even need.
Personalise with a greetings card with your own message and a handwritten recipe on a card and bind them with a jute string, or up-cycled ribbon.
Here we share this beautiful handmade ‘bake your own’ sweet cherry and white chocolate oaty biscuits……ready for you to turn into delicious, chewy, and perfect biscuit treats. They make for lovely end of year gifts, perfect to take on holiday - all you need are the wet ingredients which you will have in your fridge!
Place ingredients in 1 Litre jar. Layer dry ingredients in order listed below, pressing firmly after each layer. Seal with lid and decorate with jute twine or ribbon.
1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup white chocolate drops
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 cup of dried cherries

RECIPE CARD INSTRUCTIONS TO ATTACH TO JAR
Set the oven to 180c. Stir all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Use the back of a large spoon to work it all together. You may even need to use your hands.
Roll the dough into approx. 4cm balls, place on a baking tray with baking paper or silicon bake mat and bake for about 10 minutes. Leave on the tray, cool for 5 minutes. (Makes 20-25 biscuits)
Alternatively you can create this biscuit mix jar just for you with ingredients from our online refill shop.
