  1. In your largest bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, and white sugar. Add the shortening and stir until mixture is mealy. Lightly stir in the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips until they are distributed evenly. Place 4 cups of the master mix into each 1 quart jar.
  2. Attach the following directions to the jar: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a medium bowl, beat 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until well blended. Add entire contents of the jar to the bowl, stir until combined. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. This recipe makes about 2 dozen.

I made this recipe using butter flavored shortening and it is FANTASTIC. If you are searching through all these "in a jar" cookie recipes, this is the one. I substituted green and red M&M's for the butterscotch pieces, and it makes an attractive mix in the jar for Christmas gifts-a lot easier and faster than layering all those messy ingredients! Also, when combining the shortening, give the spoon a rest and use your hands. Its much quicker and you can finish up with a pastry cutter for a finer texture. Overall, this is fast and good-we baked one batch and they are nicely textured and flavorful with the butter shortening.

This is the BEST! And after doing a little research, as long as the jars are air tight, this mix should last up to six months with no problems! Thanks for sharing this recipe!



The jars really did look good with the shortening mixture, but I had many questions from people about shelf life of a jar mix containing shortening that I could not fully answer. I suggested everyone use it within 1 month, but if you were the recipient of a gift like this, wouldn't you want to be sure of the freshness? Anyone else have the answer for us all?
