It is the time of year for sharing food, especially cookies. Our December recipe of the month, Oatmeal Cookies, is perfect for sharing. Take these delicious cookies to a party, family gathering, or cookie exchange.
You can also make these cookies into a gift. Start with a quart sized glass jar. Pour in any optional ingredients you would like to include from the recipe such as dried cranberries, raisins, white chocolate chips, or coconut. Then pour in the oatmeal. Top that with the brown sugar. Pour in the rest of the dry ingredients – the whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Close the lid tightly on the jar so there are no accidental spills. Write out the instructions to the recipe on a card to give with the jar. Make sure to include amounts for the wet ingredients that are not included in the jar. You could even give out an individual serving size cup of applesauce with each jar – these are the perfect amount for this recipe. Finally, share your jar as a gift! It is so fun to give and receive homemade gifts like this.
