White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies in a Jar

I have a recipe for you today.. not only are these cookies delicious, but layered in a jar like this, they make a perfect gift! Only 3 ingredients need to be added to the contents of the jar before baking so anyone can definitely make these. You could, of course, also mix the ingredients together in a bowl if you plan to bake and eat them straightaway.

The cranberries and white chocolate go nicely together, and the pop of red makes these cookies perfect for Christmas.
