Oatmeal Raisin Spice cookie mix in a jar with tag attached with directions on how to prepare the mix. These make wonderful gifts to give any time of year, and also for wedding favors, hostess gifts, baby showers, or take to a cookie exchange. Make sure to bake some up so people know what they taste like. Store in a cool dry place away from a heat source so condensation and clumping does not occur. Enjoy.

These cookies are great!! I gave this to several people, and EVERYONE loved it!! The only thing I did different was to put it in different order because I didn't want the flower mix or sugar to seep down, and I wanted the raisins to be at the top incase they didn't want raisins in their cookies. The layer order I used was: flour mixture (bottom), brown sugar, white sugar, rolled oats, then the raisins. All in all, a FANTASTIC recipe!! My 1 1/2 year old son LOVED them (he cried when there was no more!!) so we give this one a 2 thumbs up!!

Did this for a church bake & craft sale. Decorated the jar, put it on a tray and surrounded it with baked cookies. Followed the advice on order: 1)flour, 2)brown sugar, 3)white sugar, 4)oats, then 5)raisins. Looked terrific, tasted wonderful and sold very well! Thanks Lisa for another great looking and great tasting Cookie in a Jar Recipe! Tip: Don't buy the baking raisins that are "moisture rich" for the jar. They are great in the cookies, but look much to moist to be sealed in the jar.

I used 1/2 a banana plus 1/2 tsp baking powder instead of an egg and butter flavored shortening plus 4 1/2 tsp water instead of butter and they were absolutely fabulous. Banana adds a unique flavor that goes well with the ingredients. Got nothing but rave reviews and requests for more!
