I never met any M-n-M cookies I didn't like!

M-n-M Cookies in a jar recipe.

Jar Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

M&M candies

* M & M's Filling the Jar: Layer the ingredients in a quart size canning jar in the order listed. I used a small funnel and it worked pretty good for most of the ingredients! Use enough candy pieces so the jar is full to the top. You can use regular M & M's (I sometimes use the colors that are available during the different holiday seasons. Example: green and red at Christmas) or the mini M & M's made for baking. Pack down all indredients, especially the brown sugar!

Print out this text, trim closely around the recipe, glue to a slightly larger piece of colored paper, punch a hole and attach it to the M & M Cookies in a jar gift!

M & M Cookies in a jar 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened 1 egg 1 tsp. vanilla

Beat together the egg and vanilla and then add it to the batter. Your dough will be a little crumbly. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes, until edges are lightly browned.
