pinch tips: Parchment Paper Vs Wax Paper



3 dozen cookies


5 Min


1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
2 1/4 c
1/2 tsp
each baking soda and salt
3/4 tsp
3/4 c
3/4 c
nuts, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda - stir well. Place flour mixture in a clean mason jar. Pack down tight so everything will fit in the jar. (Use a spoon or a mallet.) Add other ingredients, one item at a time, packing each layer down.

Put the lid on the jar and tie a ribbon around the lid. You can add a personalized label, if you wish. As an added touch, tie a wooden spoon to the lid with a piece of ribbon.

Apple sauce cookies

Whip 3/4 cup of butter or shortening until light and fluffy. Add 1 egg and 1/2 cup applesauce and beat until mixed. Stir in the ingredients from this jar until well combined. Drop teaspoons of dough on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 - 12 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Alternative: Michelle Made this with 1 1/2 tsp apple pie spice instead of the cinnamon and replaced the raisins with crasins
