Step One: Gather your materials!


-mason jar
-cookie ingredients
-measuring utensils
-paper towels

Couture Cookie #1: The Sue Ellen
Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

Ingredients:
(for the jar)
3/4 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup crushed Werther's Original candy

1/4 cup (half stick) butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg

Unwrap your candies. CRUSH 'EM. This can be done a variety of cleaner ways, but I took a meat mallet to these lil guys. It worked, but it was a bit of a mess. I suggest putting the candies in a ZipLoc baggie before crushing them, that way, all of the pieces stay in the bag.

Place your jar on the paper towel, this will come in handy. Measure out your dry ingredients. Pour them one by one into the jar, stacking style. Start with the largest quantities first, or if you want to make it look artsy you can stack them by color. 

Whatever doesn't make it into the jar, pour off of the paper towel into the jar. It's easier to use the paper towel as a funnel than pouring the ingredients in straight.
