DIY Christmas Gifts: Cookies in a Jar

December 1, 2011

YAY it’s December!!!

It’s probably my favourite month of the year, not because the days are getting shorter and because it is progressively getting colder BUT because I get to make A LOT of food and buy or make gifts for the people I love! Say it, you think i’m tacky but I really do love all of it! Even the stress :)

I am going to try and post everyday for the month of December! Please put more emphasis on the TRY… I will post recipes and DIY gifts/Decos for you to get inspired for your own Christmas feast!

This one is one of my favourite. It is just so adorable! And….who doesn’t like cookies, right!?!?!

It’s easy enough to make:

-Pick your fav cookie recipe, prepare the dry ingredients for a batch of 12 and place them one by one in your jar!

On a nice piece of paper, write down the instructions along with the measurements for the wet ingredients. Tie it up on the jar (like I did on the following picture) with something cute like a ribbon or a “christmassy” thing.

If you can find some, use colourful chocolate chips, it’s even cuter!!! :)

    Love that you made DIY cookies in a jar.  1. because it’s homemade, and that always is better then store bought. 2. because it’s in a jar, which I am WAY obsessed with!
