Christmas food gifts are incredibly popular and cookies in a jar are a great alternative to cookie trays. They’re just as thoughtful as tins filled with treats but the recipient can make them any time they please.

Like those times in mid-February when holiday diets are over and there isn’t a single Christmas cookie left in sight…

I like to think of mason jar cookies as the gift that keeps on giving!

What You Need To Know About This Cookie Mix in a Jar Recipe

It’s INCREDIBLY easy! I used a shortcut (which is 100% necessary this time of year!) and used a box of King Arthur Gluten Free Cookie Mix instead of mixing up a batch of dry ingredients myself.

And we’re elevating that cookie mix with our own tasty mix-ins, of course!

Key Ingredients for Gluten Free Chocolate Toffee Cookies in a Jar

  • Toffee Bits
  • Butter, Water, Egg – to bake the cookies but not included in the cookie jar.

Tips for Making this Cookie in a Jar Recipe

  • Be sure to use a big enough jar so all your ingredients fit. 
  • Pack the cookie mix down into the jar as tightly as possible. This will leave more room for chocolate chips and toffee bits!

Easy gluten free chocolate toffee cookies made from Gluten Free Christmas Cookies in a Jar.

Ingredients

In the Jar

  • King Arthur Gluten Free Cookie Mix
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Wafers
  • Toffee Bits

You Will Need

  • ½ cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Instructions

    1. Add the butter to a large bowl and beat until creamy. Beat in the egg and water.
    2. Add the contents of the cookie jar and mix until completely combined.
    3. Refrigerate the dough for 8-72 hours.
    4. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Use a medium cookie scoop to form dough into balls.
    5. Bake the cookies, spaced 2 inches apart, for 10-12 minutes. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Notes

    These cookies have the best flavor and texture if the dough chills for at least 24 hours. I highly recommend making the cookie dough a day before you plan on baking them.

    Add additional chocolate chips or toffee bits as desired, up to 1 cup.

    After baking, press a few extra chocolate chips into the top of the cookies and sprinkle with additional toffee bits if desired.
