Oat and Cherry Scones (Gift Mix in a Jar)

2 12 cups flour
12 teaspoon salt
12 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup instant oats
12 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup dried cherries
10 tablespoons butter, melted
23 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg white
3 tablespoons water


Creating the Gift in a Jar: Wash and thoroughly dry a 1-quart wide-mouth canning jar. Layer the ingredients in the jar as listed above starting with the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, oatmeal, brown sugar and then cherries - make sure to press firmly with a flat bottomed object after each addition; make the layers as level as possible. Secure the lid and decorate as desired; attach the instructions for making these cookies found below. OAT AND CHERRY SCONES GIFT TAG: Additional ingredients to be added by the recipient: 10 tbsp melted butter, 2/3 cup milk, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 egg white and 3 tbsp water. OAT AND CHERRY SCONES INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl combine the butter, milk, eggs and vanilla extract. Add the contents of the jar and still until just moistened; let stand 5 minutes. Shape dough into 2 6-inch rounds and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. With a floured knife, score each round into 6 wedges without cutting through the dough. Combine the egg white and water and brush over each round. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes, cut into scones and serve warm; or cool completely and store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
