I made twenty of these for gifts - and they look so nice, I'm not sure if I'm going to actually hand them out! For the cooking novice, note that 5/8 Cup = 1/2 Cup plus 2 T.

The taste of this cookie is outstanding, but I only gave 4 stars because of the prep. You really can't mix butter with egg, it curdles. That's just not how cookies are made. I ruined a whole batch the first time. Next time, I layered all the ingredients as stated, except the sugars. I put them in a small zip bag and put them on top of everything. I changed the recipe card so that you cream the butter with the sugar package, then add the egg. Turned out like a normal cookie dough that way. Thanks for the recipe!!

This was my first attempt at making a jar cookie. I just made 16 jars to give as gifts. I did try the recipe out first and it is good. It is a dry dough but bakes up soft. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead, I think they made them a bit salty, so I reduced the salt a bit. I wanted my jars to look fuller. So I layered the ingredients this way, bottom to top, brown sugar, white sugar, flour, nuts, chips, berries, oats, flour, soda, salt. Also just a note for anyone planning on making a bunch. 12 jars used: 5 lbs flour, 2 lbs oats, 1.5 pkg of brown sugar (32 oz) and 4 pkg chips (12 oz). I bought the nuts in bulk and bought way too may. Next time I think I will take my measuring cup to the store.
