Step 3: Flour Mixture

In a medium small bowl, combine first five ingredients on list: (flour, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and baking soda).

Pour mixture neatly over oatmeal. Be sure while you're adding ingredients to jar not to shake it, or the layers will be muddled.

Step 4: Sugars

In same bowl, combine the two sugars together. Then pour over as third layer in jar.

Step 5: Chocolate Chips

pour chocolate chips into jar. Secure sealed lid.

Step 6: Take a Step Back and Look at It.

2. Mix egg, butter, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Add cookie jar mix.

3. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake in preheated oven for 10-11 minutes.

    yep, that's right; I have the instructions of what to add: 1 egg, 1/2 cup of softened butter, and a teaspoon of vanilla. (of course, see instructions with what to do with these ingredients in this instructable)
