Mason Jar Cookie Recipes

Ever wondered how to make cookie mix in a jar? I have seen these mason jar cookie recipes in stores lately, and they are really cute, especially when they are finished off with a ribbon and handmade tag. But I could not bring myself to buy any of these, as I knew they had to be super simple to make. Sure enough, I was right! To make mason jar cookie recipes like this, you just need your basic cookie ingredients, a mason jar, and a little bit of time.

By taking a few extra minutes to divide and layer your cookie ingredients, rather than mixing them, and then putting all in a pretty jar, you have a an adorable, quick and delicious gift idea. This gift idea never gets old, either! You can make lots of flavors. I like to buy bulk mason jars and make a different cookie flavor every time I make them. Friends and family are always excited to get the latest batch. I add crushed peppermints during the holidays, pink sugar and sprinkles for Valentine's Day,and  different creative color and ingredient combos for other occasions.
