Include the following recipe notes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pour the contents of this jar into a bowl. Add 3½ tbs cooled melted butter, 1 egg lightly beaten and ½ tsp vanilla. Stir until well combined. Spoon batter by the teaspoon onto paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes (less if chewier cookie is desired). Makes 12 cookies.
Notes
You can use all semi-sweet chips instead of white and semi-sweet if you like. You could also substitute butterscotch or peanut butter chips for variation.
I used old fashioned oats but you could use quick cook oats as well.
I like the cookies a little crispier so I cooked them 12-14 minutes. Cook a bit less for chewy cookies.
