Ready your clean, 1 quart glass jar or container to be filled with a layer of each one of the ingredients listed above. You will begin by layering the 1 cup of rolled oats and then following it up with a layer of the 3/4 cup of all purpose flour. Finish the jar with a layer of each one of the remaining ingredients including the 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup of chocolate covered raisins, 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, and 1/4 teaspoon of spice. Seal the top of your container off and store it in a cool and dry place. This Chocolate Covered Raisin Oatmeal Cookie in a Jar Recipe has a shelf life of one month and makes around three dozen cookies.
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, you will want to prepare a large cookie sheet with either non-stick foil or parchment baking paper. Now it is time to grab a large mixing bowl and combine all contents of the Chocolate Covered Raisin Oatmeal Cookie jar with 2 eggs, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1/3 cup of slightly softened butter. Stir until the dough has become soft and smooth. Once the batter is ready, it will be time to round small balls of dough two inches apart on the pre-prepared cookie sheet. The cookies will bake for 9 - 11 minutes depending upon the strength of your oven. Once baked, let the cookies cool on a wire rack for around five minutes or so before serving.
