Mothers Day is May 8th and only a few weeks away.  I will always cherish time spent in the kitchen cooking and baking with my mom.  She is a phenomenal cook and an even better baker.  My favorite memory is getting to lick the cookie dough off the beater when she was making chocolate chip cookies.  To this day I still do that when I bake because cookie dough is just oh so good!

I completely understand baking is a skill that some of us possess while others lack the time and patience.  I, a lover of baking and baked goods, sometimes don’t feel like making a mess in the kitchen.  But who doesn’t think a homemade dessert tastes so much better than anything store-bought?!?  Thankfully for all of us The Mason Jar Cookie Company makes and sells these adorable mason jars filled with the ingredients to make cookies, brownies, pancakes, and more.  All the ingredients come beautifully layered in a mason jar.  All you have to do is add fresh dairy such as an egg and butter.  So even the not so talented baker can even whip up these yummy goodies.

Mason Jar Cookie Company Giveaway

I had the privilege to try The Mason Jar Cookie Company’s Mother’s Day I Love Mom Cookie Mix.  They are cookies mixed with red, white, and pink candy coated and chocolate and heart sprinkles, a limited edition for Mothers Day.  These cookies were incredibly easy to make and tasted delicious.  Because my husband and I both have a sweet tooth, they only lasted a few days in our house.

The baking directions come on the Mason Jar tag.  All I had to add to the dry mix in the mason jar was melted butter and an egg, so easy!IMG_3793

IMG_3791The directions even said to mix the dough with your clean hands, so I didn’t even use my stand mixer and the dough came together nicely.

Then I measured a heaping teaspoon of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet, after I taste tested of course 😉  I got these extra large cookie sheets as a wedding shower gift a few years ago when we got married.  I love that I can fit about 15 cookies on one sheet.

They baked for 12 minutes, then I pulled them out of the oven to cool.

I personally like my cookies room temperature so I waited a bit until I tried one.  They were delicious, sweet, with the perfect amount of crunch and softness.  Plus I am also slightly obsessed with sprinkles and love them in any dessert.

Mason Jar Cookie Company makes limited edition mixes for each season and signature mixes.  I personally also really want to try the Salted Caramel Cookie Mix and the Berries and Chocolate Cookie Mix.  They all sound so good and are the perfect dessert to bring to a friends or family gathering and they also make a great gift.  Birthday, anniversary, holiday, or housewarming, they have a mason jar mix for any occasion.

Giveaway Alert!

Every Mom deserves something thoughtful and nice on their special day.  So the Mason Jar Cookie Company wanted to giveaway one of their Mother’s Day I Love Mom Cookie Mix’s to one special reader.

    My favorite dessert to bake is probably chocolate chip cookies! If I win, I’d make them for a mother’s day brunch for my mom and sister!

    This is such a great idea! I would probably give it to my girlfriend who is going through a stressful time – she’s such a good mom to 2 littles!

    I would love to try out this particular cookie blend with my mother! She loves baking as much as I do. Some of our favorite desserts to bake are oatmeal cookies, peanut butter and banana muffins, and chocolate chip cookies.

    I’ve never tried the mason jar cookies but they look delicious. Was browsing through the website and the Flower Power Springtime Cookie Mix in a Mason Jar pink candy-coated chocolate and flower sprinkles is so cute.
