Jolly Jars


  • 1-quart wide-mouthed jar (with a lid) in glass or clear plastic
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup holiday colored semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup holiday colored semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 5/8-inch wide decorative ribbon
  • white paper
  • card stock
  • hole punch
  • skinny string or ribbon


1. Add each ingredient into the jar in the order listed. After each addition, use a large spoon to level and pack down each layer. Attach the lid. Tie a bow of decorative ribbon under the lid.

2. On the white paper, write or print the following instructions:

“For festive holiday cookies in a flash, preheat oven to 375°F. Beat together 6 tablespoons softened unsalted butter, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 egg in a large bowl or mixer. Add the contents of the jar and stir or mix until well blended. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake until golden, 8-10 minutes. Makes 2 dozen cookies. Happy Holidays!”

3. Attach the instructions to the card stock and punch a hole in the top corner of the tag. Thread string or ribbon through the hole and tie to the handle of the jar.
