Oatmeal Cookies in a Jar

James wanted oatmeal cookies tonight- his favorite. I made him a recipe I found for oatmeal cookies in a jar. They are thick, chewy cookies instead of the flat, crispy cookies. They make a great gift if you have an extra quart size mason jar. Or, just mix all the ingredients together for a quick batch of cookies.

Layer these ingredients as follows:

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup raisins
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

Add instructions to jar:

Jar of Mix
3/4 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend thoroughly, will be thick (you might want to use your hands!). Shape into balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Let cook on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack. Makes about 3 dozen. Enjoy!
