I know we’re not quite to Thanksgiving yet, but you and I both know Christmas and the giving season is right upon us! This week I’m daily sharing a brand new Gift in a Jar recipe for your holiday season.
Cookies in a jar are the best idea in the history of let’s put recipes in a jar and give them as presents. Toffee Pecan Cookies Gift in a Jar are divine. The only thing better than these are the peppermint brownies gift in a jar because they have chocolate in them. Chocolate is manna from heaven. Yes and amen.

You know what would make putting these together even more amazing? Eating some freshly baked ones with some Christmas music in the background while putting these toffee pecan cookies gift in a jar together. Then you really can tell people how delicious they are!
Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Cream of tartar is a fun spice that gets randomly added to baked goods. Do you know why? Let’s put on our Alton Brown Good Eats hats.
Do you need cream of tartar for cookies?
If you want the cookies to rise then yes. Since this recipe calls for cream of tartar and baking soda, you can use baking powder instead. This is pretty much the only substitution available for the weirdly named cream of tartar.
Once you have the flour mixture done, pack it in the bottom of the jar. Layer the rest in this order: brown sugar, sugar, chocolate chips, toffee bits, and pecans. Seal it up and add label. Put in the basket with all the other ones waiting to be handed out to all your peeps.Print
