Recipe: Gift In A Jar : Trail Mix Cookies

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!

Trail Mix Cookies

1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
3/4 C wheat germ
1/3 C quick cooking oats
1 C raisins
1/3 C packed flaked coconut
1/2 C all purpose flour mixed with 1 tsp baking powder

Layer ingredients in order given pressing each layer firmly in place before adding the next ingredeint.  It will be a very tight fit.

Attach this message:
 Empy jar into large mixing bowl and thoroughly blend mix.  Add 1/2 cup soft butter, 1 egg slightly beaten, and 1 tsp vanilla.  Mix until completely blended.

Shape into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart on a greased cookies sheet.  Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes until edges are lightly browned.  Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet.  Remove cookies to racks to finish cooling.  Yield: 2 1/2 dozen
