Festive Fall Kilner Jar Cookies – Cookie Mix in a Jar

Monday, October 21st, 2013

Fall Kilner Jars

Need a hostess/host gift going into the fall holidays?  I’ve been making and gifting a lot of these awesome “cookie kilner jars” this autumn. They’re super easy to make, and consistently receive a great response.  Plus, the clip top jar perfectly stores the cookies after they’re baked, or leftovers this Thanksgiving.  Thanks to Very Best Baking for their recipe.  We substituted dried cranberries for nuts, although you can totally customize your cookies however you’d like.  Perfect fall flavors with Turkey Day in mind.

What you’ll need:

(1) 1 Liter Kilner Round Clip Top Jar (You can also use the 1 Liter Preserve Jar)

-2/3 cup all-purpose flour

-1/2 teaspoon baking soda

-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

-1/4 teaspoon salt

-1/3 cup packed brown sugar (Add a little more for added chewiness)

-1/3 cup granulated sugar

-3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or butterscotch chips (or go half and half!)

-1 1/2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats

-1/2-3/4 cup dried cranberries (can put more or less to taste)

Get started:

Round Kilner Clip Top Jar 1 Liter

1. Clean your jar! We always recommend making sure your jar is clean before storing any food in jars.

2. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in the Kilner Jar, and whisk until thoroughly blended.  Lightly tap jar on counter or with hands to create a more even layer after each ingredient.

3. Layer remaining ingredients, making sure each layer is firmly packed in the jar.

4. Seal, wrap, and include a recipe card (online recipe card download Via Cottage-Industrialist)!  It’s important to tell your recipient what to do with the cookie mix you just gave them…I’ve forgotten before, and it’s a sad situation. No cookies, no fun.

It’s super easy to make these jars look amazing.  Tie a bow around the top of the jar, add the recipe card, or seal with decorative paper.
