DIY Christmas Cookies in a Jar

DIY Christmas Gifts

I’ve seen cookies in jars at stores when I was a kid and I’ve seen them online the last few Christmases. The prices on these range from $10 all the way up to $20! I paid £2.99 for a one litre Kilner brand jar and had all the ingredients required in my cupboard at home.

I used this recipe from Bakerella to put in my jar. I researched extensively online for a recipe that would look pretty when it was layered and a cookie that would also taste good when it was mixed and baked.

If you chose another cookie recipe make sure to consider weather the ingredient is appropriate to be in a jar for a few weeks (it won’t absorb moisture from the other ingredients), the ingredients will fit in your jar and the cookie can be made with all the dry ingredients mixed into the bowl at once. Don’t forget to include a tag with the directions or tape them to the back of the jar.

This is the video I was watching at midnight over and over again learning how to tie a Christmasey looking red bow! I don’t own a glue gun or have any fabric scraps to hand so I used a cupcake sticker to cover up the staple. The ribbon I used from Lakeland was cloth like. Keep this in mind when planning on any bows.

I mixed the cookies up to take into the office one day (I had to taste test them!). They tasted great and it was easy to add the wet ingredients and mix everything up.

Lakeland provided me with the ribbon on this jar. You can find it here. I really like this purple sparkly Christmas ribbon more though! Who doesn’t love sparkly ribbon.
