This year I an odd thought when making my Christmas gifts. If I make cookies in a jar for everyone else to use, why don’t I ever just prepare extra for myself? This then lead me to thinking why I default to Betty Crocker mixes when I don’t have time to make cookies from scratch? Together they formed a simple solution: I just needed to figure out how to make cookie mixes as simple to whip up as Betty Crocker, that I can store for future use!

And thus the cookie bag was born! I think you’ll really enjoy this, you will get two bags a mix for later use out of the recipe at a substantial savings, and you can customize the recipe if desired!
