Abt-Solutely Delicious: DIY Mason Jar Cookie Kits

Homemade cookies are one of the classic components of celebrating the holidays. From marathon baking sessions with the family to enjoying the spoils of your hard work, fresh-baked cookies are something that everyone loves. But some of us just aren’t cut out for the baking game, whether it’s from lack of time or a tendency to burn everything we cook. If that’s you, but you still want to be able to give a delicious, homemade gift this holiday season, we’ve got the perfect recipe for you. In fact, it’s not really even a recipe as much as it is just pouring some ingredients into jars. They also make great gifts for someone who loves baking, but is pressed for time, because each pre-measured jar provides everything needed to bake a batch of cookies except for a few common ingredients that everyone should have in their homes.
