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.
