Recipe by heather in Ont,
This makes a 1 quart jar and a great gift for a teacher, student, or anyone for that matter. Put the ingredients into a pretty glass jar and attach some ribbon and a gift tag with the instructions. I will make up a jar and take it to the cottage for fast easy cookies. No left over ingredients to deal with either.
