Cowgirl Cookies Mason Jar

I totally wanted to do this Bakerella project for my wedding. I was either going to use it as some sort of favor for a shower or hostess gift or bridesmaid gift, but it never seemed to work out. I even went through the process of buying all of the necessary materials. Well, we all know I had the Mason Jars already, but I bought all the ingredients and stalked up on like 20 bags of M&Ms after Valentine’s Day. I was so excited because, since it was after the holiday, I was able to get them at a super discounted price. Don’t worry, they did not go to waste. I ended up using them on the pink and purple Candy Bar at our wedding, so all’s well that ends well. However, I still really want to make them… Hmmm maybe for Christmas? That is the great thing about this project, all you have to do is switch up the colors and it easily changes the theme. Change them to blue and you have Cowboy Cookies, red and green and they become Christmas Cookies, red and white and it’s Valentines Day, or in my case where my sister-in-law is an Alabama Alumni they become the perfect Crimson Tide Cookies. Ooooh now I am excited!

Supplies

  • Smooth Ball Mason Jar
  • Sticker paper
  • 1 ⅞hole punch
  • Desired fabric
  • Desired string/tie
  • 1 ⅓ cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cooking oats
  • ¾ cup m&ms
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ⅓ – ½ cup chopped pecans

Directions

Layer the ingredients in like this:

  1. Flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  2. Oats
  3. M&Ms
  4. Chocolate chips
  5. Brown sugar
  6. White sugar
  7. Chopped pecans

Pack each level down really tightly so it will all fit. Add the chopped pecans last, because if the ingredients are too much or not enough, then you can add more or less pecans to adjust. The ingredients should be flush to the top of the lid when you seal it up.

To decorate the top of the jars, get a spool of suede cord and some fabric. Cut the fabric into 6 inch squares and the suede into 25 inch pieces. Place the fabric on top and tie ribbons around the lid to hold it in place.

For the labels, you’ll need some card stock, a paper punch and double-sided tape – OR sticker paper works great too.

Bakerella has very nicely provided an awesome PDF of the labels she used for her Cowgirl Cookies – Check it out!

Notes: If you want to bypass the whole Mason Jar/gift idea and just want to make the cookies no problemo… Cowgirl Cookies!
