Easter Cookies In A Jar

I've always thought these cookies in a jar recipes were
so cute, but I've never made them!
I wanted to send a hostess gift with Taylor
when he visits the future in-laws for Easter,
so here's what I put together.


Layering the ingredients makes it look pretty,
and craft scissors, velvet ribbon and
double sided tape help finish the look.


Easter Crunch Cookies

1/4 c white sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 1/2 c flour
3/4 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 c oats
1 c Cadbury chocolate eggs
1/2 c Rice Krispies

Layer in order given.
Tag should instruct baker to add 1 stick soft butter,
1 egg and 1 t vanilla.
Bake 350 for 10-12 minutes.
