Making cookies in a jar
The only mixing you’ll need to do for this recipe? Combining the dry ingredients. After that, it’s just a matter of layering in the oats and sugar, along with the walnuts, cranberries, and white chocolate chips.
I have some tricks for making this easy gift even easier. Making many at one time means in just a hot minute you’ll have half a dozen (or a dozen) gifts ready for giving. This is a fabulous gift to have kids make!

Filling the jar
Once you’ve got your jar ready, line them up on the counter. A canning funnel makes filling the jars a snap if you have one. Alternatively, you can make a quick paper funnel. Place your funnel in the jar and measure dry ingredients in. Shake the jars a bit to level the ingredients. Now add the remaining ingredients, layer by layer, pressing each down as you go.
When the jar is fully assembled, twist on a lid. Print out labels and tie one on each jar. Tada! Cookie mix in a jar ready for giving. To make the cookies, just add butter, egg, and vanilla.
Once you have the ingredients out, assembling a number of these cookies in a jar gifts at once won’t take much longer than doing a single one! Might as well do several. (I like to keep a couple of these on hand for unexpected holiday drop ins, too!)
Tucked into a pretty jar, this makes a lovely teacher gift or a little something for the neighbor who watched your cat for you that one time.
