Teacher Gifts

This one is fast and dirty, as I'm trying to get the house cleaned and everything packed up for our holiday trip to the Midwest, but I wanted to share what I got my kids' 10 (!!) teachers this year for Christmas:


Yep, it's a cookie recipe in a Mason Jar, just add butter, eggs, and a bit of vanilla. 


The recipe is from Spoonful.com, which is owned by Disney.  Luckily, I made a test batch a couple of weeks ago, because 1 stick of butter and 1 egg is NOT ENOUGH to make good dough.  At all.  I had to play around and double it and they came out much better.

Just for fun, I ordered pictures of the kids (5 of Avery, 5 of Cassidy - they each have 5 teachers), cut them out, and modge podged them onto the top. 



Putting it all together with a bit of yarn, some Christmas stickers, and careful pouring, and we get cute holiday cookies in a jar!
