Tips to Make Cookie Recipe in a Jar

  • When you’re making the layers in this cookie recipe in a jar, it’s fine to do them out of order that I did them–that’s not going to affect the way the cookies turn out at all. But, to make the gift in a jar look at stunning and fun as possible, you want to separate the white sugar and flour and white chocolate chips. That way there’s a very distinct color change. So much prettier that way.
  • If you don’t have a pretty holiday ribbon, don’t despair! You could use some twine or a strip of red cloth. Nothing says it has to be a ribbon.
