I’m trying my absolute best to make this into a handmade holiday.  I have a tendency of putting the majority of my gifts into mason jars.  I just can’t help it!  I have everything from my Cucumber Green Tea Sugar Scrub to my Peppermint Cupcakes.  I definitely seem to like things that either smell good or taste amazing so these Christmas Cookie Recipe Gift should come as no surprise.  They smell divine and taste amazing once they’re baked.  Plus, I have a fabulous free snowflake gift tag to go with them.

You all know at this point that I try my best to take every short cut possible.  You also probably have realized that I have a slight obsession with Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Mix.  I regularly use them at my parties with my royal icing recipe.  I’ve definitely improved my icing of the sugar cookies as I’ve learned the consistency of the icing can make or break the design because of the outline not being thick enough or the flooding is too runny.  In order to package the sugar cookie mix, I used pint size mason jars and split the Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Mix into three mason jars.  On my gift tags I gave the instructions to combine the cookie mix with one egg and 3/4 stick of butter.  I also gave my royal icing recipe on the tag.    The best part about this idea is that you can use any recipe that you like so if you have a family favorite sugar cookie recipe just put the dry mix into your packaging and provide the extra ingredients needed.  I also packaged my Christmas Cookie Recipe with a cookie cutter and a sleigh bell in the middle.


Snowflake Tags

I didn’t want to leave you high and dry without any gift tags so I created these Snowflake Tags for you so that you can use them as you see fit.  Do you have a favorite DIY Gift Idea that you’re working on this year?

  1. Lovely ideas for using mason jars. As I moved to the US from UK last year I I’m just discovering all the creative ways to use these jars.
