Cookie Jar Cookies

Oatmeal butter cookies
Claire Cohen

Everyone knows that a full cookie jar is the sign of a happy home. But not all cookies are appropriate to keep in a cookie jar! Cookie jar cookies must be sturdy, usually unfrosted, but still delicious and munchable.

These cookies are perfect to ship to loved ones too. Just think how much your college student would love to get a box of these cookies! Just pack them in tightly sealed plastic bags, then put the bags into a sealed plastic box.

When you're making cookies, it's important to measure correctly. Measuring flour is most critical. Enjoy making these cookies and fill up your cookie jar!

Cookie Jar Cookies

  • The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
    Yes, these really are the best. Ground oatmeal and ground white chocolate add fabulous texture. And they ship well too; be sure to read the review by Deanna456.
  • My Mom's Oatmeal Cookies
    There's something about the combination of ingredients in this recipe that makes it chewy, tender, and crisp at the same time. This is the only oatmeal cookie recipe I make. For good reason!
  • M&M Cookies
    Chocolate chip cookies are usually my cookie of choice, but these run a very close second. And they're so pretty! You can style them according to the occasion by using different colored candies.
  • Grandma's Sugar Cookies
    This is my Grandmother Matha's recipe for sugar cookies. They are so tender with a fabulous slightly chewy texture. I love to frost them (but then they don't do as well in the cookie jar!).
  • Snickerdoodles
    A version of this cookie has been around for decades. Cream of tartar makes them slightly crisp. They're rolled in cinnamon sugar before baking for the perfect finishing touch.
  • Date Oatmeal Cookies
    These old-fashioned cookies are so good and easy. They can be formed into balls and baked, or increase the milk a bit and make them drop cookies. Either way, they're perfect for the cookie jar!
  • Crisp Peanut Butter Cookies
    Flaked rice cereal adds a bit of crunch two these tender cookies. They use honey instead of sugar, and whole wheat flour; so they're kind of good for you too!
  • White Chocolate Cashew Cookies
    What could be better than white chocolate and cashews in a tender brown sugar cookie? Nothing!
  • Ginger Cookies
    Crystallized ginger and ground ginger add fabulous flavor to these chewy and tender cookies. Omit the frosting to put these cookies into the cookie jar.
  • Monster Cookies
    These large cookies are filled with crushed pretzels, corn flakes cereal, and four kinds of chocolate chips. Yum.
  • Malted Milk Cookies
    These cookies have malted milk powder and crushed malted milk balls for fabulous flavor. Omit the frosting if you want to put them in a cookie jar.
  • Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
    This cookie really is delicious. Omit the chocolate and peanut butter filling to make double the number of cookies and fill up two cookie jars!
  • Applesauce Granola Cookies
    Applesauce and granola, along with just a tiny of molasses, make these cookies delicious, chewy, and crunchy at the same time.
  • Oatmeal Butter Cookies
    Okay, so there is another oatmeal cookie I make: this recipe, from my Grandmother Clara. It's a simpler cookie with a rich butter and brown sugar flavor.
