Here is a fun basket to gift to friends or family. Inside they will have every thing they need to make their own sugar cookies at home. There family will have bun baking and decorating their own sugar cookies.
In a large quart canning jar put the following:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Here are the directions for baking the cookies that you will want to print out and include with your gift basket:
Combine Sugar Cookie mix with 1/2 cup of butter (softened) and one extra large egg. Mix until dough forms. Lightly flour surface and roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out cookies. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
To make the cookie toppings a little more fun and festive I added them all to plastic ornaments. These can easily be found at any craft store.
Here is everything I included in the basket (I found my basket in the Target Dollar Spot for $3):
- Sugar Cookie Mix (in jar)
- Cookie toppings (in plastic ornaments)
- 3 Cookie cutters
- Red Kitchen Towel
- Small ornaments for decoration
This would make a fun gift for neighbors or any one who need a little Christmas cheer.
