If you still don't know what to surprise your friends with under the Christmas tree, then DIY cookies in a jar are the right idea.

DIY cookies in a jar are a cute idea to encourage the recipient to bake cookies themselves with minimal effort. An idea that you can use for a wonderful gift during the holidays is also quite easy to prepare. Put the dry ingredients for cookies in a pretty jar and add a card with instructions on how to turn the ingredients into a delicious dessert.

  • 115 g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 150 g of raisins
  • 165 g of oatmeal
  • 125 g of light brown sugar
  • vanilla pod


  1. In a clean, dry 750 ml glass, carefully fold the ingredients in order, starting with the flour. Place the vanilla pod inside or tie it around the lid with a cheek ribbon. Also include a paper with baking instructions.
  2. Write the following on the gift tag: To bake the cookies, heat the oven to 180ºC. Open the jar and carefully pour the sugar into the mixing bowl with 115 g of softened butter. You cut the vanilla pod, scrape out the seeds, add it to a bowl, and then beat it all together with an electric mixer to a fluffy texture. Mix in the large egg and combine the rest and mix until smooth. Place the dough in the refrigerator for half an hour, then spoon it onto a lined baking sheet. Flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cookies are golden on the edges but soft in the center. Leave on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
