Recipes in a jar are a great gift to make ahead of time and bring to any occasion. I find that they are nicer than baked goods sometimes because the recipient can use these jars anytime.  It also fit my need of dry ingredients to make the trip to sunny Florida via airplane.  They were a huge hit and I was glad to bring a few gifts along with us on our trip

Recipe (adapted from Cranberry Hootycreeks, as referenced all around cooking sites and Pinterest)

1/2 cup + two tablespoons flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup slivered almonds (baking almonds)

I used an old mincemeat jar to make these, but you can also use Ball Canning Jars.  I simply layered the ingredients into the jar as listed above, and used a circular potato masher to condense each ingredient.  They are an easy holiday gift that will stay fresh well into the new year!
