holiday cookie mix.

If you’re anything like me, you mean well during the holidays. You write lists of all the gifts you’re going to get for every single person you know and can’t wait to get to wrapping them. This, my friend, is as far as I get in the gift giving process during the holidays. At least for my friends. I always want to give all of my friends special things, but I just never have enough time to do that much shopping!

SO. This year, I decided to make cute cookie jars for my girlfriends and special families to us. And I’m sharing the recipe here with you today. It was simple, quick, and it’s always fun to get one of these! A pre-made jar full of ingredients to make yummy cookies on the spot without getting my kitchen dirty?
