White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cookie Mix in a Jar

1 1/4 cups - all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon - baking soda
1/2 teaspoon - salt
1/2 cup - firmly packed Florida Crystals® Organic Brown Sugar
1/3 cup - Florida Crystals® Organic Cane Sugar
3/4 cup - toasted macadamia nuts, chopped
1 cup - (6-oz.) pkg. vanilla milk chips

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Spoon into 1-quart widemouthed canning jar. Layer remaining ingredients in order given, making sure to pack down each layer firmly and clean inside of jar with a dry paper towel after each layer. Decorate lid by cutting fabric into a 7-inch wide square or circle. Secure with a rubber band and tie with a decorative ribbon and accents.

Attach these instructions to the jar:
In a large mixing bowl, cream together 2/3 cup softened butter or margarine, 1 egg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until combined. Slowly add contents of jar and mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Quick Tip:
Toasting heightens the flavor of nuts. To toast macadamia nuts, spread the nuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 350°F. oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice to brown evenly.
