Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar
Yield: 24 cookies
For twice as many gifts, divide the dry mixture evenly between two pint-size (16-ounce) jars. If you do this, remember to cut the additional ingredient amounts in half and write your own instruction card rather than using the printable gift tags.

For those who enjoy the salty-sweet combination, a light sprinkle of flaky sea salt adds a little something special to the freshly baked cookies.


  • 2 cups (254g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (96g) granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (100g) packed brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1½ cups (255g) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (32-ounce/quart-size) jar


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and pack firmly into a quart-size jar.
  2. Cover with the lid.

Attach a card with the following directions:
