It’s that time of the year again and you want to show your love to your neighbors and friends. Who does this through baking?
My sister loves to bake Christmas cookies and starts in November making and freezing about 10 types of cookies. She’s a Christmas Cookie Warrior!
I like to keep things a little simpler and focus more on presentation. This year, mason jars came to mind. Hmmmm, how would you fit cookies into a mason jar? Tiny cookies!
I baked 3 kinds of cookies: tiny Sugar Cookies, tiny Gingerbread men and Brown Rim Butter Cookies. (The Brown Rim Butter Cookies fit perfectly into a mason jar.)
My original idea was to go with a “winter” theme. The mason jar caps are silver, blue sugared cookies, white ribbon and a snowflake ornament. I added the royal iced sugar cookie “light bulbs”. Honestly, I wasn’t that impressed with how the jars actually turned out.
So, on to idea #2.
Since I had also made a batch of Brown Rim Butter Cookies and decorated them with red and green sugars, I tried another combination. These jars contained the red and green sugared cookies and gingerbread men. Using the same white ribbon and a store bought tag, I liked the look of these better. And the ones with the red ribbon are the best!
