WARNING: If your gift recipient waits a while before using the mix, the brown-sugar layer will have hardened into a solid chunk that has to be chipped out of the jar and won't blend well with other ingredients once it is in the mixing bowl. I discovered this when I used the mix three weeks after it was made, and I ended up with a bloody finger after having to pry the brown sugar out with a knife. My suggestion is, blend the brown and white sugars together before packing into the jar, so that the brown sugar can't harden into a chunk. Perhaps not as pretty, but definitely more practical -- and more safe. I have to say, though, that I am not crazy about the idea of giving a cookie mix as a gift. I mean, if you care enough to give, why not go to the trouble to bake a batch of cookies for someone?

I've made this a few times as gifts and they're always a hit. I would agree that the layering needs to be changed. I started with the flour mixture on the bottom and then alternated dark and light. I also used peanutbutter chips in exchange for the nuts, because you never know who doesn't like them. A good idea for a gift is to make a batch of the cookies to give with the cookie mix in a jar. It's immediate gratification and they will know what their batch will taste like!

This is a really delicious cookie. I made about 24 cookies from the mix instead of 36 (ie bigger than suggested) and cooked them for about 20 minutes. The baking soda/powder could be tasted slightly, so could be reduced, but it was not overpowering and didn't leave a bitter aftertaste. Also, I made the recipe with half choc chips and half white choc chips and it turned out great. Lastly, I made the order in the jar as follows: 1/2 flour, brown sugar, white sugar, cocoa, remaining flour (with baking powder and soda), choc chips, pecans. This gave a light, dark, light appearance to the mix in the jar. Thanks for the recipe, Jennifer - it's now one my favourites!!
