Last year I made these Cookie Jars as gifts (I used the Ikea jars). I filled them with dry Cookie premix and tied a cookie cutter to the lid. I also made up directions for how to mix, bake and decorate. They were a hit. A wonderful activity for children to do with Mum or Dad during the holidays.

Christmas Love with Cookie Mix

Hope I've inspired you to start your Christmas baking!


  1. Just loved these ideas!!!!
    Unfortunately I'm so far to buy them...(I'm from Brazil)

  2. Oh, you're a gem! Thank you so much Sharnel! Does Martha ship to Australia?

    Can't wait to see more of your yummy treats. You're my go to girl for recipes this Christmas.

  3. She sure does Amanada. Shipping is expensive though. But it's worth it I think. The boxes are gorgeous. I have three different designs from two years ago. Including the iced cookie one!
    Stay tuned for more homebaked goodness!

  4. Thanks Sharnel - just beautiful. Now I just need to be able to make my baking look as beautiful as yours! Any tips on some simple cookies that look great and don't need too much decoration (I find that is where I sometime fall down!!) Ta Leanne
