These Reindeer Cookies are so amazing! They are a combination of white chocolate chips, granola, dried cranberries and oats. They taste divine and they didn’t last long at my house! Not only is this recipe just plain great, it’s also the perfect cookies in a jar recipe! It makes beautiful layers in your jar and fits perfectly, filling the jar! I’ve also got a free printable for you so they can have beautiful tags! These are a fun gift and they are quick and easy to put together too!
To make Reindeer Cookies in a jar you are simply going to layer the dry ingredients in a wide mouth, quart size canning jar. These can be found at most hardware stores or in the canning section of big box stores in the Fall. Add ingredients, one at a time in this order: Mix together flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl and add to the bottom of your jar. Then add, one layer at a time: oats, brown sugar, white sugar, dried cranberries, white chocolate chips and finally granola.
To make it easier to fill and layer your jars nicely I recommend using a wide mouth canning jar and a wide mouth funnel. These aren’t necessary but they do make the job easier. As you fill your jar with each ingredient, layer it nicely and pack it down a little with a spoon. Put a piece of fabric over the lid before securing the ring to the jar. I also used bakers string and twine to tie a bow around the ring to make it more decorative.
Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt in a small mixing bowl.
Put flour mixture into the bottom of the jar. Using a canning funnel makes this easier.
Then layer each ingredient individually, creating pretty layers:
oats then brown sugar, then white sugar, then cranberries, then white chocolate chips, then granola. Pack down each layer with the back of a spoon as you go.
Print off free labels and affix to the front and back of jar.
Dump jar in large mixing bowl and add 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 egg and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix well and drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
