Dry Ingredients for Cookie Jar

  • 156 Grams All-Purpose Flour (1 1/3 cup)
  • 4 Grams Baking Powder (1 Teaspoon)
  • 10 Grams Baking Soda (1 Teaspoon)
  • 1.75 Grams Salt (1/4 Teaspoon)
  • 106 Grams Brown Sugar (1/2 Cup)
  • 100 Grams White Granulated Sugar (1/2 Cup)
  • 70 Grams Slivered Almonds (3/4 Cup)
  • 95 Grams Sweetened Coconut Flakes (3/4 Cup)
  • 85 Grams Milk Chocolate Chips (1/2 Cup)

Wet Ingredients to Mix in Later

  • 113 Grams Butter, Softened (1 Stick - 8 Tablespoons)
  • 4 Grams Vanilla Extract (1 Teaspoon)
  • 1 Large Egg


To Make the Cookie Jar

  • Use the funnel to pour the flour into the quart-sized mason jar.* Gently knock down and press the flour with a spoon or spatula to create the first layer.
  • Continue adding the dry ingredients layer by layer as they are listed in the recipe. Gently press each ingredient as they are added to the jar to ensure they all fit.
  • Seal the jar with the lid. Decorate with ribbon, tags, or twine according to personal preference.

To Make the Cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit (176° Celsius).
  • In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together the softened butter, vanilla extract, and egg.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, pour the ingredients from the jar and stir them thoroughly.
  • Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
  • Use a cookie scoop to make 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized cookie balls on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Be sure to leave room between each cookie to account for expansion.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are slightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool on the pan for a few minutes before serving. *


*My funnel was too small – I found that if I folded a paper towel into a general funnel shape that I was able to pour the ingredients in the jar without a fuss. 
*These cookies are easy to over bake. The middles will look doughy and soft when you pull them from the oven. Just let the residual heat from the pan do the rest of the cooking for you.
