I really wanted to share a couple of Christmas finds with you that I have recently come across and love. The first one being "Cookies in a jar". This great idea landed in my inbox via The Organised Housewife. If you have'nt visited Katrina's website make sure you do - it is crammed with Christmas things to organise, make, bake and do. She always has a load of great ideas for gifts like the "Cookies in a jar".
What do you think? I thought this would make a great teacher gift or something to have on standby as a last minute gift you can grab from your cupboard.

- 1 1/3 cup Plain Flour
