These make wonderful gifts to give any time of year and also for wedding favors, hostess gifts, baby showers or take to a cookie exchange and make sure to bake some up so people know what they taste like to. Store in a cool dry place away from a heat source so condensation and clumping does not occur. Enjoy!

I tried this recipe last night. I did add 1/4c of butter to help the mix stay together- because it did seem a little crumbly. The cookies turned out amazing. I only made a dozen and rolled the rest into loaves so I could make them quick for a get together later this week. I will definetly be making these as gifts for friends and family this year. Thanks for another wonderful recipe! I also like Cookie Mix in a Jar VI & VIII. Read More

I made this recipe to see if I wanted to use it for gift giving. It was very dry hard to mix and did not turn out very well. I double checked the ingredients I put in so I know that wasn't the problem. If I were you I would try a different recipe. Read More

This is a clever idea for a gift however (and I'm not sure this is why the dough was so dry) I used chunky peanut butter and the result was dry crmbly dough that made dry crumbly cookies. For the second batch I used enough milk to make a typical cookie dough consistency. These turned out much better. Definitely make them before you give them away to see if they work out better for you than they did for me. Read More

I gave this as a gift to my sister. After she baked them she told me her 1 1/2 year old daughter kept saying "More cookie more cookie!" Read More
