Cookie presents

Last year, we made bath bombs on a semi-industrial scale.

This year, we wanted to make something different but again something that was relatively easy to make. We decided to make up jars filled with mixture which could easily be transformed into cookies.

We chose a favourite recipe, Delia Smith's Chocolate Chip Ginger Nuts, and soon realised that we needed to double up the recipe to fill the jars.

1 litre Kilner jar
Dry ingredients for favourite cookie recipe: we used a funnel to insert everything apart from the chopped chocolate.
Write out instructions for recipe. Note the instructions had to be altered to state that wet ingredients need to be added. In our case, golden syrup and butter. Younger Daughter wrote out the first set of instructions but we plan for her to type out another set that can just be printed off. I don't see the educational or other value of writing out the same instructions multiple times!

We have listed the ingredients in case of allergies and these need to be wrapped carefully as the jar is glass. Overall, though we are pleased with how these look.
