Extend the joy of gifting with our White Chocolate Macadamia Cookie Mix in a Jar. This holiday season, you can share the warmth and sweetness of homemade cookies with friends and family without heating your kitchen. 

I like to buy a case of wide-mouth Mason jars and make a dozen jars of homemade cookie mix at a time. The jars are great holiday gifts for teachers, Sunday school classes, Christmas parties, drop-in guests, Dirty Santa parties, etc. Of course, you can make them any time of year – simply use the scrap fabric of your choice to match the season or occasion.

These DIY cookie mix jars are super easy to make and are always well received. I mean, what gift recipient wouldn’t want to get a jar of cookie mix?

Let’s look at how to make them.

Items Needed

  • 1 Wide Mouth Quart Mason Jar
  • 1 7×7-inch Cloth Square
  • 1 20-inch String/Twine/Leather Strip/Ribbon, etc.
  • Recipe Tags
  • Hole Punch
  • Paper Towel

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts

Layer Ingredients: Begin with 2 cups of flour, adding baking soda and baking powder. Pack it tight. Clean the edges for a neat presentation.

Sweet Additions: Add a cup of sugar and gently pack it down.

Next, add white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.

Seal the Jar and Decorate: Center a cloth square on top, securing it with a tie. Attach a hole-punched recipe tag with a string. Trim the string for a neat finish.

Tips

  • Be careful while patting down the flour. It will want to poof up if you go too fast and it makes a mess.
  • It’s best to put the hole in the recipe cards in the upper left corner. This will allow the card to hang properly. 
  • You may need to make some slight adjustments after you get everything tied on. It’s about impossible to get it perfect while tying it on. 
  • The only jar size that works for these gifts is a wide-mouth quart jar. Do not use a regular mouth jar or a pint-size jar.
  • You can make your material squares a little smaller if desired. However, 7 inches works the best.

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts

Instructions

  • Place the flour in the jar and add the baking soda and baking powder on top. Pack it nice and tight.

  • Add the sugar on top and pack it in tight.
  • Add the white chocolate chips and gently pack them in.
  • Add the nuts on top and then add the lid.
  • Place the fabric centered on top of the jar and use the tie of choice to secure it in place. (To make things easier, place the jar rim over the fabric to secure it all in place.)
  • Use pieces of string to attach a recipe card. Snip the excess string after that to make it look nice and neat.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 9 minutes
Cooling Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 34 minutes
Servings: 30 cookies

Equipment

  • Parchment paper
  • Baking Sheet
  • 1-Inch Cookie Scoop

Ingredients

  • 1 jar White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie Mix
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup butter at room temperature (2 sticks)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, cream butter, eggs, and vanilla at medium speed.
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Fold in the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts until thoroughly combined.
  • Using a cookie scoop drop the cookie dough onto the prepared cookie sheet, leaving about an inch in between each cookie.
  • Bake cookies for about 9-11 minutes or until they start to become golden brown. Remove them from the oven and allow them to rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • If the dough begins to warm up, you will want to chill it a bit before cooking. If not, the dough will spread out resulting in thinner cookies that are crunchy. If you like this style, no need to chill.
  • Check the cookies after about 5 minutes, just because each oven is different. For example.
  • If you want bigger cookies, use a larger scoop. You just won’t make as many as the recipe suggests and you may need to cook them a couple minutes longer.
