Baking | Cookies From A Mason Jar

I'm back finally with another baking post! It's been a long time since I last posted a baking post and hope to add them more frequently into my blog in the future. So today I bring to you a little beauty I found in Homesense, which has quickly become one of my favourite stores to peruse when I'm in town. I found this SistersGourmet Triple Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix and thought it was such a cute idea I had to purchase it to try it out. So here's what you need...

SistersGourmet Triple Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1 1/2 Sticks Of Butter
1 Egg
1 Tsp Of Vanilla Extract

First soften the butter in a large bowl. It's best if the butter is at room temperature as it's easier to mix and you don't get lumps of butter. Next add the egg and the vanilla extract to the butter and mix. I put in a little more vanilla as I love it.

Next you want to add the entire contents of the mason jar which is all the dry ingredients. Make sure you have a rather large bowl or put in the dry ingredients a bit at a time.

Tip: If the dough isn't sticky enough and won't stick together add a bit of water to the mixture. I found I had to do this and I added about 2 Tbs which made it perfect.

Finally form little balls on a baking tray and bake for about 10-15 minutes. It states the mixture makes about 3 dozen but I varied the sizes to see how they would come out so I got about 15-20 out of it.

My final thoughts are... I love this idea!! They came out nice and tasty and couldn't find a fault in them. There were other types in Homesense so if they are still there when I go back I'm definitely going to give them a try.

If only this company wasn't American I would definitely order some more mixes from their website here.

What's your most favourite thing to bake?
