Makes 3 Dozen Cookies

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips*

*If you don't like butterscotch, you can substitute the butterscotch chips with more chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, or dried cranberries!

To Assemble Mason Jars:
  1. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt and pour into a large glass mason jar.
  2. Pour in half of the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips to form an even layer above the flour.
  3. Pour in granulated sugar and brown sugar in alternating layers above the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour in the remaining half of the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
  5. Seal with a mason jar lid and cover with a square piece of burlap or fabric, and tie with a ribbon or twine.
  6. The key to assembling the jars is to use the chocolate chip layers to firmly separate the sugars from the flour layers, so that they can easily be separated when pouring out.
  7. Add a recipe card with a sweet greeting for the perfect holiday gift for the home baker!
  1. Open jar and separate ingredients into 3 bowls: 1) chocolate and butterscotch chips, 2) granulated sugar and brown sugar, and 3) flour, baking soda, and salt.

  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar for approximately 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating slowly after each addition.
  5. Add vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.
