Christmas Cookies in a Mason Jar

I had to come up with a few quick gifts for Christmas and with all the cookies being gifted this time of year, this seems like a super cute gift to DIY.


Here is where the great recipe came from, the Kansas City Star.

Let me know if you try it and how yours turned out.

Merry Christmas & I hope to have more posts more frequently.
