Mason Jar Christmas Cookies

Sometimes I think …”ok I’ve got this…I can do the mommy things, the blog things and the Christmas things” ….but most of the time I’m just over here hanging on by a thread.

If you’re anything like me and tend to leave a few things till the last minute, and …. so inevitably you’re still on the hunt for a last-minute Christmas gift, I’ve got you covered. The best part about this one is you might not even need to leave the house (just raid your own pantry)!

Last weekend my MIL and I were doing our annual Christmas baking and we decided to create our own Mason Jar Cookie gifts. I’ve always wanted to make these, so I was pretty excited to give it a try.

Well, it took us quite a few tries to get our recipe right and to fit everything into the jars, but when we did, we were really excited about it! So, I’ve decided to share the recipe with all of you, just in case you wanted to make White Chocolate and Cranberry Christmas Cookies or wanted to give this as a gift.

I’ve also created a printable recipe for you to add to your jars, so it’s super simple!
