Mason Jar Cookie Recipes: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

Ever wondered how to make mason jar cookies? I have seen these mason jar cookie recipes in stores lately, and they are really cute, especially when they are finished off with a colorful fabric and ribbon, with a handmade tag. I could not bring myself to buy any of these , though, as I knew they had to be super simple to make.

Sure enough, 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 will add crushed peppermints during the holidays, pink sugar and sprinkles for Valentine’s Day, different creative color and ingredient combos for other occasions.

Hint: You may have to pack the flour mixture down periodically to make sure it all fits.

    Do not make these! It does not make cookies. It is a huge mess all over your oven! There’s not enough flour or dry goods. Not a gift if you want someone to be your friend later.

      You have to mix the wet ingredients separately, just like when you buy the box cake mixes at the store! : )
