Every holiday season, my family puts together a batch of cookies in a jar. We create something new every year and I believe this is our fifth year making these for our friends.
I think homemade gifts are always so thoughtful and packed with love. Many of my friends recycle the jars back to me and tell me they can’t wait to see what they get next year. (I assume the ones that don’t tell me that, still like them… but, well… you never know right? I found two unmade jars on a friends counter once… she gets premade goodies now!)
This batch of cookies in a jar are Double Chip Cookies (recipe below). The four of us circle around our kitchen table with an ingredient (or two) and we get a little production line going.
I use fabric remnants for the lids, print up recipe cards on the computer and attach with raffia. A little personalized note on the back (optional) and you’re done!
It’s not too late to create these. You could even deliver them as New Year’s gifts, which we might end up doing ourselves this year. Enjoy!
