Ranger Cookie Mix in a Jar

This recipe is the first one my husband ever brought home to me.  It was after a military trip where he was entertained in the home of an Air Force buddy and his wife.  I have made these countless times and have adjusted the recipe to fit into a mason jar.

1 c. butter
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, well beaten
2 c. quick cook oats
1 c. brown sugar
2 c. Rice Krispies
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. coconut
2 c. all purpose flour
1 c. walnuts
1 tsp. baking soda
Cream butter and sugars; add eggs, vanilla, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in cereal, oats, and nuts mixing by hand as the batter is thick. Roll into balls about the size of a golf ball. Bake in preheated 350° oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.

To make cookies:

Note: Instead of a traditional cookie exchange at Christmas, have your guests supply a

portion of the ingredients and quart canning jars along with your contributions. Set up

an assembly line of ingredients with amount needed. Fill jars, offer refreshments,

them provide decorative card stock to make tags with baking instructions- Instant
