"I thought the recipe in a jar idea was great for a gift, so I'm making this for my coworkers for the holidays. Of course, I had to test the recipe first and these cookies are delicious! I can't wait to make them again for my family. The only thing I changed was I melted the butter instead of just letting it soften so that it would mix together more easily."
