I’ve debated whether or not to share my secret.
I just might have the tastiest and easiest gift idea you’ll ever find.
Take a few ingredients, a jar, and some ribbon and you’ve got yourself a pretty fantastic Christmas gift.
These cookie jars have been my go-to for years. They are perfect for teachers, neighbors, and friends. They also happen to make a really successful adoption fundraiser. We raised more than $1,000 selling these cookie jars during our adoption process.
I always make a handful each Christmas. This year I’m giving them to Jackson’s speech therapists.
And I’ve also decided to share my secret recipe with you!
Because they really are that good!
Grab a few quart-sized jars, fill them up, and spread some sweetness around this Christmas.
