A gift to share this holiday season, create Thankful Cookies in a Jar, with this printable and recipe idea. I introduce Erin from Strawberry Mommycakes! {UPDATED to add a recipe card to attach to jar!}

Thankful Cookies in a Jar Mix and printables

I tend to shy away from baking. I CAN bake, but it’s not incredibly enjoyable to me. I really really like eating baked goods though.

Especially cookies. It’s probably a good thing I don’t bake too often because I would end up eating everything in sight. I know I would like to get these Thankful Cookies in a Jar from someone (and I always pick gifts that I would like to receive!) This would be the perfect gift for a friend that you’re thankful for!

For my cookie recipe, I used an oatmeal cookie recipe with white chocolate chips, Reece’s Pieces and pecans. They were SO good and just reminded me of Fall!

You can download these printables for FREE onto sticker paper (I use Avery full sheets) and stick them to the jar. The set includes a front label, the back label (where you’ll write the instructions) and a label for the lid. It’s an easy, inexpensive gift that tastes delicious…can’t really get any better than that!

{UPDATED by Kristen: This is SUCH a cute idea, and when I realized there wasn’t a printable for the recipe to gift, I had my designer whip something up. So after you attach the sticker to the jar, you can print and attach the recipe so those you gift it to, have easy access to the recipe!}
