With all the holiday fun and festivities, it also brings in the holiday baking season as well. I'm jumping on the blogging bandwagon and making some Christmas cookies and treats to spread some holiday cheer. From now until Christmas, I'll make twelve holiday cookies and treats. I had a hard time trying to narrow which 12 cookies and treats that I wanted to make but I'm pretty sure you'll make a couple or a dozen goodies.
Bakerella had made these adorable Cowboy cookies and I saw a Christmas version of it from Make it Do. These are pretty inexpensive gifts to share with your friends and family!
Cookies in a Jar for Santa
Adapted from Make it Do and Bakerella
1 Quart Wide Mouth Mason Jars
Cookies for Santa Printable Label
2 inch paper puncher (Scalloped box is the one I used)
Double stick tape
Colored scraps about 10x10
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Lay out all your Mason Jars, and measure the ingredients into each jar, and try to pack it down. I used my wide mouth canning funnel to help place the ingredients in the jar.
From bottom to the top layer should follow as:
Layer 1: Flour
Layer 2: Baking soda, baking powder and salt
Layer 3: Rolled Oats
Layer 4: M&Ms
Layer 5: Chocolate Chips
Layer 6: Brown Sugar, White Sugar
Layer 7: Chopped pecans
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooking oats
3/4 cup m&ms
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans
After you have measured out the ingredients, cover it with the lid. Place a piece of cloth and tie a pretty ribbon around it. Print out your labels on cardstock and punch them with a 2 inch paper cutter. Place the labels on the front and back with double stick tape. Repeat and continue with the rest of the mason jars.
