The perfect gift for Christmas!
Making a cookie mix in a jar is probably the easiest gift I’ve ever made, and not to mention a tasty one too! I experimented with a few different versions of this recipe and after eating loads of cookies (definitely a perk), even a giant mess-up cookie, I finally settled on this one. Perfection. Once you get a rhythm down, you can make lots of cookies in a jar! I love the presentation of these gifts. The beautiful layers make it so appealing, you just need to whip them up immediately. Let’s just say the mix won’t stay in the jar for long!
See, even underneath the decorative cloth, the layers keep going. These are the perfect ‘make ahead’ gift too. So, go ahead and get them all packed up for Christmas!
