Coffee Shortbread Gift Jars


I have always been inspired by homemade gifts for Christmas and have normally cooked gifts from the heart - this time I thought I would prepare all the raw ingredients and package them up in pretty jars.  All that was left was to add the recipe tied with a bow.

  1. Every year for the past few years I have been going to do this, I have the jars and recipes - so what's stopping me? These look great, I'd love to be a recipient of one of those - I'm not asking for one, just thought how lovely it would be to make some cookies by just tipping out a jar of ingredients and adding say butter and egg - simple.

    1. Obviously not an original idea - but lovely to prepare - and hopefully lovely to receive. Go for it you still have time!

    1. Thanks Jude. I have been very inspired by your pinterest collection. These jars are not in the same class as your gingerbread houses - but its the thought that counts.

    1. I sympathise entirely - I had lots of good ideas but always leave it too late and then I am rushing. It is such a busy time of year. Bookmark the idea -there is always next year Laura - then again you don't have to wait until next Christmas I am sure anyone would love a little gift like this at any time! Merry Christmas
