I could not fit all the ingredients in the jar, and the cookie dough was dry.

I'm not sure what recipe everyone else used, but this recipe is no good. I could not fit all of the chocolate chips into the jar, which another reviewer mentioned. Then when I mixed the ingredients together, the consistancy was really sandy. It barely held together even when I packed it. I tried baking it anyway and they were crumbly and it seemed too sugary. I felt that it lacked salt. I would not recommend trying this recipe unless you want to adjust the measurements to get a good recipe. Sorry!

Very pretty in jars. I really had to squeeze everything in. It worked because I had a liter and not a quart jar, so be careful there. I hope they taste as good as the jar looks!
