Trail Mix Cookie mix in a jar with tag attached with directions on how to prepare the mix. These make wonderful gifts to give any time of year and also for wedding favors, hostess gifts, baby showers or take to a cookie exchange and make sure to bake some up so people know what they taste like to. Store in a cool dry place away from a heat source so condensation and clumping does not occur. Enjoy!

I just tried making these cookies before giving them away in jars and they came out tasting great. They do come out better though when the balls are compact, so putting them in the refridge. before is helpfull other wise they fall apart when taking them off cookie sheet.
