Our great nephew gave us a jar of these cookies for Christmas this year and we love them. I had to google for the recipe to make more!

Wanted a cute jar recipe for gifts a couple years ago and tried this. They are now a family favorite and we have given multiple jars over the years! Everyone raves! I usually get about 24 from the recipe.
