1 1/3 cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cooking oats
1/2 cup m&ms (I used the red and green ones I got from www.amazon.com)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1-quart jar, with lid
Layer the ingredients in the jar in this order:
1. flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
3. m&ms and chocolate chips
4. brown sugar
5. white sugar
6. chopped pecans
Pack each level down really tightly or else it won’t all fit -- trust me on this one! The ingredients should be flush to the top of the lid when you seal it up.
Include these instructions with your gift: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir dry ingredients in a large bowl and add: 1/2 cup (almost melted) butter, 1 slightly beaten egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract,. Combine thoroughly. Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls & bake for 10 minutes.
