Cookies in a Jar...

Not a new idea...but a simple and lovely gift for those who like to bake.....I have made a whole batch up ready for my hard working volunteers that give of their time every week.

I bought 750ml jars and then followed this recipe to fil them .

I attached a Christmas gift tag with the recipe on the back...these were just a recycled Christmas card.....

Although the recipe calls for you to roll in balls to cook, I did attach a Christmas shaped cookie cutter just for fun.

So another handmade gift sorted on my list . This combined with our teachers gift....means I have achieved far more than I thought I had time for much satisfaction though producing something handmade.

  1. Handmade feels so good doesn't it? Love this idea - there is something infinitely pretty about baking in a jar x

  2. I love cookies in a jar! They make such fun gifts.

  3. What a brilliant idea! I love how you have presented them as kids would love putting something like this together.

  4. These are gorgeous and look so yummy- a perfect thank the teacher gift too : )

  5. Those jars looked great all lined up Bron, such a fun idea. I'm sure they'lll all be appreciated by the recipients....

  6. Bron, I too intend doing up cookie bottles like this for gifts too, though so far hadn't decided on a recipe! But have to say yours look so very pretty! I'm sure they'll be a hit with the recipients. ♥

    p.s. just had to say I especially loved #1 on your thankful list. It would definitely be a very happy sight to see! :)

  7. I LOVE IT!!!! I think I will make a couple of these for my family! Thanks for sharing!
