Tips for making ‘Cookies in a Jar’

  1. If you’re making multiple jars, line them up in a row and place the first ingredient in each one and then repeat with the remaining ingredients (like your own little production line).
  2. Have a clean dry cloth or paper towel ready to wipe down any excess of the dry ingredients from the inside of glass as you go.
  3. Use a spoon to carefully add each of the ingredients to the jar.
  4. If you have a bit of room left at the top of your jar, simply add in some extra white chocolate chips.

    Hi- just cooked these 15 minutes was way too long. I did the second batch
    For 10mins and they were perfect. Could I use less sugar a tad too sweet

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Absolutely if that’s what you’d prefer! It really depends on your oven – so best to play around with the length of time! xx
