Cookie Mix with Candy - Cookie Mix Recipe


An easy cookie mix recipe for holiday gift-giving.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 to 1 cup small candies or chocolate chips


Sift together the flour, soda, and baking powder. Layer in a wide-mouth 1-quart canning jar, the sugar, the candies, then the flour mixture. Write the following instructions on a small handmade or purchased card and tie to the jar.

In a large mixing bowl, beat 1 cup softened butter with 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix in cookie mix, using hands or wooden spoon to blend thoroughly. Shape cookie dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place cookies on lightly greased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated 375° for 10 to 12 minutes, until edges are lightly browned.
Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
