Cookies in a Jar


This week at MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) our craft session was creating Cookies in a Jar! The jars are full of the dry ingredients required to make a batch of 24 biscuits and all you need to do is add some butter, an egg and vanilla essence! Simply layer the required ingredients (pretty much straight from your pantry staples) and add a bit of ribbon and a label for decoration. And “ta-da!” you have a gift beautifully packaged in a jar and ready to give! This super easy recipe can be kept in a jar and with a simple label and some ribbon to decorate.
