For the next week, I will provide a recipe every day that I like from the Mary Hunt's book, Debt-Proof the Holidays. I am hoping that these give you some ideas for homemade gift-giving this Holiday season!
Raisin Crunch Cookie Mix
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C raisins
1 1/4 C packed flaked coconut
1 C crushed cornflakes
3/4 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C quick oats
1 1/4 C all purpose flour mixed with 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp baking powder
Layer ingredients in jar in order given. Press each layer firmly in place before adding next ingredient.
Attach this message to the jar:
Empty cookie mix in large mixing bowl; stir to combine. Add 1 cup softened butter, 1 egg slightly beaten, and 1 tsp vanilla; mix until completely blended. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls. Place 2 inches apart on a lightly gerased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 3 to 4 dozen.
