Take the cookies

I think it is better to just bake the cookies and take them as a gift. No work for the hostess.

Great lesson on measuring!

by B. Barbara , Simi Valley, CA on Dec. 2011

I had my students measure and make these as a gift for their home. It was fun, educational, and yummy! We used the sample jar + needed ingredients to show them how it's done. I was amazed that many of them had never made cookies from "scratch". Thank you!
