This is an easy way to give friends the perfect gift: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar. Combine only the dry ingredients, and then tell them how to do the rest in their kitchen on a slip of paper you tie onto the jar. Happy mixing...

Sprinkle of nutmeg
1 ½ cups quick oatmeal
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cups chocolate chips
Step 2: Fill Jar With Oats

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.
Step 7: Attach Recipe for Friends

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.
