Cranberries, white chocolate chips, oatmeal and pecans make up these festive Winter Cookie Mix in a Jar. ♥It's officially Christmas break at our house, so let the holiday baking begin!!!! Do you love homemade cookie mixes in a jar? Mixes in a jar are one of my favorite gifts to give. I love the idea of giving cookie gift mixes to friends, family, neighbors or co-workers, because it gives them the opportunity to bake the cookies at their own convenience.
These cookies are one of my favorite holiday cookies. There's just something about the combination of cranberries, white chocolate and toasted pecans. These buttery cookies are thick and chewy with oatmeal, white chocolate chips, sweet dried cranberries and pecans.
These festive cookies would make a wonderful addition to your holiday cookie tray. Now let's get started on this easy recipe.
