Coconut Cranberry Cookies in Jar!
This is a great cookie in jar recipe. We got this a couple of years ago from a dear friend. We have since made it as a stand by gift ready for whomever we forgot to get a gift for! Our kids have made them for their married siblings. The cookie is delicious. The cornflakes and the cranberries make a great presentation in the jar.
One challenge to making these cookies in a jar or any jar type gift is the jar itself can drive the price up. The best is to look for cute jars at garage sales or find them on a 90% off sale.
Last year, we found great jars at a store close-out and only paid $1 per jar! I was sooo glad we had made extra as the unexpected blizzard on Christmas Eve caused all our company to stay the night. I was able to pull cookies in jar gifts off the shelf to have presents to give! You can always throw in a stainless steel cookie sheet to make this an even better gift! (click here)
