Chocolate Chip Biscuit Gift Jar

    42 minutes

    This is a great idea for a 'mass' food gift. Mix up all this biscuit mix in a big bowl, divide it into jars and give it as a gift with directions attached (and a nice ribbon!).

    I made this recipe using butter flavored shortening and it is FANTASTIC. If you are searching through all these "in a jar" cookie recipes, this is the one. I substituted green and red M&M's for the butterscotch pieces, and it makes an attractive mix in the jar for Christmas gifts-a lot easier and faster than layering all those messy ingredients! Also, when combining the shortening, give the spoon a rest and use your hands. Its much quicker and you can finish up with a pastry cutter for a finer texture. Overall, this is fast and good-we baked one batch and they are nicely textured and flavorful with the butter shortening.  -  21 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is the BEST! And after doing a little research, as long as the jars are air tight, this mix should last up to six months with no problems! Thanks for sharing this recipe!  -  11 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The jars really did look good with the shortening mixture, but I had many questions from people about shelf life of a jar mix containing shortening that I could not fully answer. I suggested everyone use it within 1 month, but if you were the recipient of a gift like this, wouldn't you want to be sure of the freshness? Anyone else have the answer for us all?  -  08 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
