  1. Combine the flour with baking soda and salt.
  2. In a clean 1 liter sized glass jar layer the ingredients in the order given starting with the brown sugar and ending with the flour mixture.
  3. Attach a card with the following directions: Cookies 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line one baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. Empty the contents of the jar into a large bowl and mix until all the ingredients are well combined. 3. Using your hands work in 3/4 cup softened butter or margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 4. Beat 1 egg with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Work this into the flour mixture until well combined. Dough will be a little crumbly. 5. Shape dough into 1 inch sized balls and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Slightly flatten the balls with the palm of your hand. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 14 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove cookies to a rack to cool. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

I made twenty-five of these for Christmas gifts and after the first one I realized I needed to put ingredients in in a different order. I put the flour mixture in first, then the brown sugar, packed it down really well, then the white sugar and finally the M&M chips. It looked very nice and I was told by one of the recipients that they were the best cookie her family had ever had.



I made 14 of these for Christmas. I also layered the flour, soda and salt, then packed down the brown sugar, added the white sugar and topped it off with the candy. I put them in decorated glass jars, and tied the directions and a wooden spoon on with raffia. Everyone loved them. My brother just baked his up and ate half of them in one sitting!



When you stack the layers, the flour settles into all the other ingrediants. It was horribly unattractive to give as a gift!
