These "gifts in a jar" recipes are always well received! So easy to finish with minimal ingredients, and you'll have homemade cookies in a flash! This is my own concoction that I like to put together, but you can change up the extra ingredients (to equal the same amounts) as you like and design to the person and family you are giving to. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
