Hostess Gift

I wanted to take a little something to my friend Grace when we went to visit recently. I remembered that I still had one of these jars and decided to make cookies to fill it and deliver to her! I thought it turned out so well and best of all, I got to help eat the cookies!! Thank you, Grace, for your hospitality! We had a great time at your house!

Another great idea is to combine on the dry ingredients in a jar for either cookies or soup and give the recipe too! All they have to do is add the wet ingredients.

I like the idea. For a non crafty person, that is something up my alley.
