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.

Then print off thesefree printable reindeer cookies in a jar tags. Print on an 8×11 piece of white card stock paper. A thicker paper will hold it’s shape better when you stick them to the jar.

Then color in the “Reindeer Cookies” letters using a BICMark-It™ permanent marker. I used the Key Lime color!

Then carefully cut out each tag, following the outer edge of the label as a guide for cutting it out.

Use permanent double sided tape to affix the “Reindeer Cookies” label to the front of the jar.

Use double stick tape to affix the directions to the back of the jar.

Now the lucky recipient of the cookies in a jar just has to dump the mix in a bowl and add butter, an egg and a teaspoon of vanilla and bake them! They are SOOO good!
