Cookies in a jar make an awesome Christmas gift, they are easy to put together and everyone loves cookies right?
This is the perfect gift for a teacher, or perhaps you are stuck for a secret Santa idea? Either way, these cookies in a jar could be the answer to your problem.
Quite simply they are….cookies in a jar. You can choose to either provide the ingredients to make the cookies OR if you have the time you could bake the actual cookies themselves.
How To Make Your Cookies In A Jar
Mason jars are easy to find and I used jars sized 0.95L (32fl Oz) each. Once you have your jar, print off the free labels and attach with some twine or ribbon.
If you have decorated jar lids like the ones in this post, you don’t need to do anything else, but if the jar lid looks slightly dull, why not cover it with some fabric of choice. Hold the fabric in place with the ribbon or twine.
If you wish to give a gift that is a little bit different, why not go for the cookies in a jar ingredients. This is simply a jar full of the dry ingredients with a recipe card attached.
The person receiving the gift will be able to follow the recipe and make the cookies for themselves. I initially saw this recipe on Bakerella blog, but changed it slightly to take out the nuts and make sure it fitted in the jar!
The ingredients look fantastic in the jar and it makes such a cute gift. The layering is what makes the jar look so effective and it is easy to do. I layered the jars as follows:
1: Flour & baking powder
4: Chocolate chips
5: Brown sugar
6: White sugar.
Make sure you pack the ingredients tightly, to ensure they fit into the jar. Don’t you think they look great when they are completed?
Attach the FREE cookies in a jar label and the cooking instructions, and your gift is complete.
The person you have given this gift to will be able to make these absolutely delicious cookies. YUM!!
Of course, instead of giving the jar with the ingredients in, you may wish to actually bake the cookies yourself and give the gift of the ACTUAL cookies in a jar.
This also makes a super cute gift and you can still attach the cookies in a jar label. These home style cookies look great in the jar and literally scream “eat me”.
If you wish to make the cookies, here is the recipe you will need to follow. I made 28 cookies with this recipe.
Whether you chose to give the actual cookies in a jar, or the ingredients to make the cookies, this is a wonderful simple gift that everyone would enjoy.
The cookies in a jar labels are sized 7 x 7cm and are available for you to download for FREE from the printable library.
There is no limit to how many times you can download the printable’s, they are free for you to enjoy as many times as you like.
Which gift do you think you would prefer to give? The ingredients for the cookies, or the actual cookies in a jar? Either way, I am sure you will be putting a smile on someone’s face
