Mason Jar Cookies!!!

For subscribers of PopSugar Must Have, they received a little pouch from the Mason Jar Cookie Company filled with cookie goodness in their box (among other goodies).  All you need is a stick of butter, one egg and vanilla to whip up a batch of cookies in a flash.

They’re very simple to make.  You put the wet ingredients in one bowl, the dry ingredients in another bowl, combine, mix and then bake.

I have to say, the cookies were delicious!  Everyone at the office is enjoying them, too.  They’re not too sugary and very light.  Like 90 calories per cookie light.

What I like about this little bag of cookie ingredients is that it makes for the perfect gift.  You can either buy it in a pouch or in the jar from the Mason Jar Cookie Company.  They even have special pancake mixes, brownie mixes, and granola mixes as well.  You can even create your own special mix, which would make for a great wedding favor.

I’m sure some of you are probably thinking: But I can just make this myself and give it away as gifts.  Sure, you can, but this is for those of us who don’t have time (or the patience) to put this stuff together along with all of the added stuff you have to do like shopping for the jars, gathering all the ingredients, and making it look festive.  Mason Jar Cookie Company takes all the added stress and work out of it for you.

The only major downside to the convenience is the price.  I’m not sure how much the pouch is, but the jars run anywhere from $8.99 on up.  You can buy them online at the Mason Jar Cookie Company or at or  {NOTE: You can get a couple of good deals at HSN.}

Personally, I like the pouch option to have around the house when you’re craving something sweet.  The ingredients are already pre-mixed, you just have to add the wet ingredients.

The jars are great to give out as gifts, especially if you need to buy a gift less than $20 (like a secret santa gift).

So that’s what I cooked up this weekend.

I’m still working on the leftovers from last weekend, so it was nice to get in a little bit of a sweet surprise for the weekend.

Speaking of sweet surprises…it’s a boy!

matthewmatthew2Introducing Matthew. I adopted him last Friday.  Sweetest little man ever!  He’s a little handful right now, especially since the resident alpha (his big sister) is not happy about a new cat on the premises.  He’s the reason why I didn’t cook anything beyond cookies this weekend.

He got in the box and the lid came down.  When I looked over, I saw him like that and just burst out laughing.  Who knows how long he’d been hanging out in the box like that.

Just as long as he’s happy, that’s all that matters.

I personally liked the message on the PopSugar Must Have box.  Surprise. Love. Enjoy!  It was a surprise I found him still in the pet store two weeks after inquiring about him (he was adopted and then returned).  You can’t help but love that cute little guy (well, he’s bigger than his big sister) and enjoy his curiosity, playfulness and youth.  He’s such a sweetheart.

I’m very happy he’s joined our little family.
