Cobbler Mix
 

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup sugar

Combine ingredients in a small bowl. Store in an airtight container.

Attach this recipe to the jar:

Berry Cobbler

4 cups fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries or boysenberries)
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix from jar

Preheat oven to 375F. In large mixing bowl combine berries, juice, sugar, and cinnamon. Place berries in a greased 13 x 9-inch pan. In small mixing bowl blend the butter with the egg and vanilla.

Make Your Own Jigsaw Puzzles

Poster or magazine picture
Rubber cement
Lightweight cardboard (notebook covers, tagboard, shirt cardboard)
Scissors
Clear adhesive paper if desired (like Contact brand)
Trim the cardboard so it is the same size as the picture.  Spread the back of the picture with rubber cement, and glue to the cardboard.  Dry.  Turn the cardboard over and use a pencil to draw curving lines from one edge of the cardboard to the other.  Draw more curving shapes within the larger ones.  Don’t make the areas too small, or cutting them out will be difficult.  When you have divided the area into interesting shapes, cut along the lines to create the puzzle pieces.  Store pieces in an envelope.  If you want to make the puzzle more durable, cover the picture with a piece of clear adhesive paper before cutting.

If you make several puzzles, you may want to label them so they don’t get mixed up.  Label the pieces that go with each puzzle by marking all pieces to the same puzzle by marking all pieces to the same puzzle with a similar mark such as a colored “x” on the back of one puzzle’s pieces, an “s” on all pieces to another puzzle.

Gift Tag: To make Chewy Butterscotch Nut Bars: Empty contents of jar into medium bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter, 1 large egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
