JOHN DEERE cookies

Have you ever made something you thought was so  cute you could do a cartwheel??
well....although I can NOT take full idea was
fully inspired by bakerella. I still thought theese babies up
and am SO proud of them.

I did the same exact recipe and instructions as on bakerella.
EXCEPT however I swaped out the pink m&m's
for JOHN DEERE green and yellow!

on the site she has printables for the recipe and the cowboy/girl cards.
 I used one for the recipe and made up
 my own sweet JOHN DEERE cookies tie on.

She mentioned to use the SMOOTH ball jars expecially for crafting!
The ones with no embeloshed logos in the glass.

Bakerellas RECIPE:

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooking oats
3/4 cup m&ms
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans 

1 slightly beaten egg
1/2 cup butter (melted slightly in the microwave)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
Use the back of a large spoon to work it all together.
You may even need to use your hands to get everything incorporated.
