Day 19 - Cookies!

Nothing says I love you like homemade cookies! It is a gift that keeps on giving, and a great idea for the person who has everything! There are so many ways to deliver these lovely morsels, baked fresh in a cute box, or on a gorgeous serving plate, that can double as a secondary gift.

For that person far away, send just the dry ingredients with a recipe and instructions on how to finish. You can make the jar a secondary gift as well. If you are worried about the glass breaking, find a plastic version or use a clear bag and dress it up with a colorful bow! The person receiving these will see your ultimate dedication and love! Some of our samples and suggestions are below. Thanks to Michelle for this recipe and beautiful picture of Gingersnap cookies.

Gingersnap Cookies in a clear bag, ready to be shipped. The receiver only has to add a few ingredients, pop them in the oven and enjoy! See the recipe here.

Mint Chocolate delights, from Nestle toll house. See the recipe here.

Mint Delights in a beautiful jar that can later be used for the finished cookies, coffee or so much more!

This box holds 6 large cookies or 12 smaller cookies and is ready for a neighbor, teacher or co-worker.

Pictured: Box (.50 cents @ Michaels) with a (.99 cent @ Michaels) bare wood ornament. I inked this ornament in red Distress ink by Tim Holtz and sprayed it with pearl glimmer mist spray for some shine. Red sparkle ribbon ($1.50 @ Michaels)

So heat up that oven or get out that measuring cup, you only have 7 days left! Visit our online community for the recipes. Thanks for visiting today!
