This is really a great chocolate chip recipe, I also used this once for my daughter's class gift project. They loved measuring. It fits perfectly! 5 stars

I used only one stick of butter and 2 eggs. Came out great. I could not fit the last 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in the jar =( But told my friends to add it. They have been raving about this recipe and have asked for the recipe to make more. Like it 4 stars

RESPONSE to the reviewer below: you have to pack the ingredients down. Usually when you measure out ingredients (except for brown sugar) they are fairly loose in the measuring cup (at least they are supposed to be). To fit them into the jar you have to pack each layer together. The flour can lose half its volume if you pack it down enough. Never had any trouble with this recipe. 5 stars

The recipe says to layer the ingredients in a "quart-size jar." One quart is equal to 4 cups. The ingredients as listed (not including the wet ingredients to be added by the person receiving the gift) total 5 cups plus 2 teaspoons. Unless the person writing this recipe uses some sort of magical quart jar that is bigger than all other quart jars in the world, then it simply will not fit. This is a major error that should be corrected before it is posted publicly. I am not impressed. 1 star
