It's not October yet but I'm thinking Halloween. Maybe it's because every time I turn around I see a ghoul or a goblin ready for purchase. There are plenty of fun tricks and treats to buy but what could be better than good old fashioned, homemade cookie-in-a-jar.
I found the jars at Taipan for $3.00. They are just right for the average 2 inch scoop cookie.
This cookie (see recipe below) is great for freezing. When I need a quick "Hey I'm thinking about you" treat for a friend or neighbor, I'm able to pull out the already baked cookies from the freezer.
Stack them in a cute jar.
Add a fun tag.
And have a SPOOKtacular giftie.
