READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Ducky

This is posted in response to a request and I have not yet made it. The recipe comes from the "Gifts for the Cookie Jar" cookbook. Times are guesstimates to assemble the jar mix. Substitute a different dried fruit for a different taste.

These were yummy, i have to admit i messed up the jar presentation lol. It had flour going down into the chips and cranberries so didn't look so great. Very simple to put together though.
