2.)
Ingredients to make M&M cookies
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup M&M’s
1/3 cup brown sugar packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1-quart Mason jar

Instructions Assembling jars:
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Pour into the bottom of a 1-quart mason jar , I used a canning funnel, made it much easier. Top the flour mixture with M&M’s, dropping them in lightly so that they don’t sink into the flour. Top the M&M’s with brown sugar, and then granulated sugar. Seal with the lid and decorate with fabric.

Recipe to include with the jar:
In a large bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of melted and cooled unsalted butter, 1 large egg, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Add the contents of the jar and gently stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined (dough will be crumbly). Chill for 30 minutes.

Form golf ball sized portions of dough, pressing firmly as you form the ball. Place the dough balls onto lined baking sheets. Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes, until the edges are set and the centers of the cookies are still slightly underdone. Place baking sheets on a rack to cool.
