Cookie Dough Jar

Instead of taking over a plate of cookies... take a cute jar full of your favorite cookie dough. This way the recepient can bake at her leisure. Make sure to include baking directions. Cute jars can be found in the kitchen section at Wal-Mart for $2.86. Other fun ideas would be to do sugar cookie dough and attach a cookie cutter. Or fill a shaker jar with fun sprinkles and attach a recipe.
I'm totally doing this for Christmas neighbor gifts...I love it! This is the perfect cookie dough to use!
Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Ever
2 cups butter, softened (yes, you read correctly that's 4 sticks)
4 eggs
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 t. almond extract
5 1/2 cups flour
2 t. salt
2 t. baking soda
small pkg French Vanilla instant pudding straight from the box
2 pkg chocolate chips (you could use m&m baking bits or the holiday colored choc. chips)
Basic cookie directions...Cream butter & sugars. Add eggs & extracts. Mix dry ingredients together. Slowly pour dry into wet. Stir in chips. Oven 350 for 10-12 minutes. I experimented and liked them at the 10 minute mark over the 11 or 12, slightly more doughy looking tastes better I'd say.
Thanks Jamie for your awesome recipe!
