Last week I had the opportunity to share a cookie recipe and mason jar gift over at Made to be a Momma as part of a Christmas Cookie Exchange. I want to share my recipe and gift idea with you here along with the printables I used to create the gift.
**This giveaway has ended**
This cookie is one of my favorites, it combines cranberries, vanilla, and oatmeal. It’s originally from Taste of Home and has been a hit with my family. The best part; it makes a great gift in a jar. Mason jar gifts are one of my obsessions this holiday season. These ingredients, layered together with a cute tag, make a special gift for a teacher or co-worker and are inexpensive and easy to assemble.
You will find the recipe below as well as a file to print the recipe and instructions for the top of the jar. This recipe includes instructions on how to layer the ingredients in a jar as well as make the cookies. If you can’t wait feel free to skip the jar and whip up a batch for yourself.
