How to Make oatmeal raisin cookies in a jar


  1. Instructions for layering ingredients:

    ingredients in the order listed. If there is any space left after adding the last ingredient, add more baking chips, dried fruits or nuts to fill the jar
  2. Place lid on top. Cut an 8-inch circle of fabric to cover lid.
