|Just a few gifts ready to go under the tree!!|
This is my recipe for the Christmas Cookies:
(They are listed in the order they should be put in the jar)
* 3/4 cup Plain Flour
* 1/2 cup Self Raising Flour
* 1 cup Oats
* 3/4 cup Christmas M&M's
* 3/4 cup choc chips
* 1/3 cup brown sugar
* 1/3 cup caster sugar.
I got my jars from Kmart and at $2 a jar they are a good buy, especially if you plan on making a few. The other up side of using a glass jar is that is can be re-used for storing some of the cookies if your recpient wants to have a few out on show...if they last that long! ;)
Make sure you really pack each layer in as you go, or else not all the ingredients will fit.
I attached a lable to the back as well with the instuctions on how to put it all together.

* 1 egg
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1 tsb milk
* 1 tsb vanilla
Roll them into balls, place on a baking tray and pop into a pre-heated oven at 180°C. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
You can prettie up the jars how ever you like. I used some material I picked up from Spotlight, ribbon and twine (from Whimsy Farm Twine) and the lables I made.
If you'd like a copy of the lables so you can make your own jars, feel free to send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment with your email address under this post and I'll email it to you completely FREE!! :)
I hope you all enjoy this idea and recipe, and even if you don't do the jar idea, making up some cookies and wrapping them in some cellophane with ribbon would be a great little gift idea too!!
I hope you all have a wonderful and magical Christmas and stay safe during the festive season!
