The Cookie Jar


This is a quick, affordable but personal gift for anyone who likes cookies (who doesn’t like cookies)?  Just grab a quart jar and layer in the ingredients, tie the directions to the jar and it’s ready to go.  Makes a very cute combo gift for a first apartment housewarming tied up with a wooden spoon.  Or extend the gift by giving everything needed to bake them – a cookie sheet, spatula, wooden spoon and bowl.

And don’t be afraid to customize it for the person you’re giving it to.  Layer in nuts, change to milk chocolate chips.  Try peanut butter chips with chocolate chips.  Mix it up!
