This is a tasty cookie mix–and the layers in a quart jar are visually tempting…from your basic flour, white and brown sugars to quick oats, pecans (optional) and chocolate chips.
We’ve done it before at homeschool Christmas gift making parties, and plan to do it again this year. Go to the Frugal Homemaker’s website for recipe specifics, and also for printable instruction labels to add to your jar! While there have fun browsing her many “gift mix” recipes (not just cookies, but soups also!). My 9 year old is currently putting together “Snow Balls Mix”, using a nifty tin as her container.
If you use a glass quart canning jar, embellish it with a Christmasy fabric topper, and tie with raffia.
Ta-da, Merry Christmas and Happy Budgeting!
