Have you ever wanted to make cookies, but want the work to be mostly done for you? Have you ever loved those mason jar cookie dough starter gifts but don’t want to shell out $20 for something you can easily do at home? Well then, this recipe is great for you.
When I was eight I received one of those cookie dough in a jar starter and thought they were just so cool. Years later, I wanted to make them for my coworkers as they are easy and in expensive, and I thought I would share how to do it with you.
