Jungle Cookies

IMG_1059 I made two different types of jungle cookie prize jars for my friend’s baby shower last weekend. They were easier to fill, more fun to decorate, and way cuter in the end than I’d anticipated. They were a great hit, too! Since everyone who won one has asked for the recipes, I’ve decided to share ’em. ;)


Each of the cookie jars  with a 8-10 minute bake time had:

1 and 1/8 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup rolled oats (these are the best ever)

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup white sugar

1/2 tsp each: baking soda and salt

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 cup pecans


Each of the cookie jars with an 11-13 minute bake time had:

1 and 1/3 cup all purpose flour

1 and 1/3 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tsp each: baking powder and baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/4-1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


I had some cute labels printed from the fronts of the jars along with matching scallop tags.  I tied fun fabrics overlaid with tulle for added shimmer and sparkle around the tops with the scallop tags attached. Then, with a hot glue gun, I adhered fluffy, flowery tulle ribbon around the edge in alternating fushia and lilac.
