Raisin Crunch Cookie Mix (recipe in a Jar )

“This is a favorite gift item at christmas around here. They are also nice to keep on hand when the grandchildren visit they help make cookies which keeps them busy for a few minutes. When making these recipes, keep this in mind: The first recipe is the one you make and put into the jar. The second recipe should be printed out in a nice font, maybe with a nice border around it, and attached to the jar. A simple circle of cloth placed between the seal and the ring (of a two-part canning lid) makes a pretty effect and you could also add a ribbon around the ring. (Use scissors to cut a 9 inch-diameter circle from cloth of your choice. Place over lid and secure with rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover rubber band.) You can add a piece of cotton under the material to make it a little puffy. A hot glue gun is a very useful tool to have! You can glue on dried flowers, ribbons, dough-art...you name it, it can be glued onto the lid, ring and side of the jar.”
