Chocolate and Oatmeal Cookies in a Jar

Chocolate and Oatmeal Cookies in a Jar

This past holiday season, my mom sent me a large box that was filled with countless mason jars complete with ingredients to make some of my favorite foods including soups and cookies. To me, this seemed like the perfect gift to give and receive so I recently decided to try out this fun food-related craft to see what I could create. In my version of these cookies in a jar, I decided to create Chocolate and Oatmeal Cookies.

Typically, these gifts are given around the holidays. However, they are also nice to give as hostess, “welcome to the neighborhood,” and teacher gifts. Family and friends always love receiving these jars filled with delicious recipes because not only are they beautiful to display on the counter, but they are also fun to bake.

    I love this concept and so do my family and friends :-) since they got this as part of their goodie bag for Christmas. This is an easy way to get them in the kitchen and bake their own cookies :-)
