      Hi Sue, The link should always take you to the recipe, you may have to scroll down the page to find them, but they should all be there. Which one in particular are you referring to?

          Hi Denece, I just checked the link and it is working fine. Here’s the recipe though. To put in quart jar:
          3 c all-purpose flour
          1/2 c chopped dried apples
          3 tbsp sugar
          2 tbsp baking powder
          4 1/2 tsp cinnamon
          1 1/4 tsp salt

            i see the ingredients, but not the recipes for them all. usually when you send a gift like this thjere is some confusion as to how to use it. generally youd tie on a tag with the recipe, including baking times, how-to, etc…

            Hello! As the author of the post with the apple cinnamon pancakes, I can tell you that if you are able to open the link and you scroll down, I had scanned in the recipe tags to be tied onto the mason jars and linked them to the post. If you are unable to open the link, the recipes can be found in the Soup to Nuts Mason Jar Cookbook by Lonnette Parks. She seems to have many variations on the book, also including cookies recipes.
