These were so easy and such a hit last year, and, because the children have new teachers, we made cookies in a jar again as Christmas gifts. Using the exact same recipe as last time too. What's not to love? They're simple enough for children to make themselves, the recipient can make them when they want and the packaging is reusable.
This year we made them on a slightly larger scale - a dozen in total for teachers, neighbours and friends. I bought ingredients in bulk (thank you Costco) and used canning jars that I already had. We had a nice little production line going in the kitchen and were finished in less than an hour.
The clean up (not yet started) might take slightly longer mind you.
Big thanks once again for Launder, Fold and Repeat for the inspiration and recipe.
