M&M Cookies from Cookies-In-A-Jar

Allie passed me a jar of M&M Cookie Mix because she said she does not like baking. She told me that most of her baking came out not so nice and that I make such nice cookies. She joked that she does not have an oven as good as mine! So, I took her cookie mix and baked the cookies for her instead. I am glad she likes them a lot.

Come to think of it, Cookie-Mix-In-a-Jar is a great gift idea. It makes baking cookies much simpler. Most of the ingredients are already in the jar except for the butter, egg and vanilla or other liquid. Moreover, the instruction is on the jar too.

You can Google for the phrase “cookie in a jar” and get recipes for the cookie mixes.



  • a jar of M&M cookie mix
  • 3/4 cup softened butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla



Preheat oven to 350F.

_MG_9960Empty contents of the bottle into a large bowl and mix well.

Add in the softened butter and blend well.

_MG_9961Lightly beat an egg in a small bowl and add the vanilla.
_MG_9965Add the egg and vanilla into the flour mixture. The cookie dough is slightly crumbly.

I used a small ice-cream scoop to get the same amount of cookie dough for even baking.

_MG_9964Roll the cookie dough into a ball and place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet, 2″ apart. Bake at 350F for 10 to 14 minutes or until the edges browned.
