The Christmas Treat of 2013 is...

Cowboy (or Cowgirl) Cookies by Bakerella! 

This is a fun make-in-a-mason-jar gift that allows you to put cookie ingredients together and then your recipients can actually make the cookies! You layer all the dry ingredients into a mason jar, and then wrap it up all pretty with a nice bow. The Bakerella website even has free printables so you can make nice labels for attaching to your mason jar. And you'll definitely want to take advantage of those! The label with the directions for baking the cookies is ready to go, so you don't have to type it up!

These cookie mixes were supposed to have walnuts in them, but I ran out of room in my mason jars! Still, the cookies taste great. I made a batch for myself just to test it out, and they were pretty yummy. Very soft and chocolatey.

I even had some of these for breakfast. They have oatmeal in them, so that means they are breakfast-appropriate, right? Ha ha!

Note: These are not gluten-free. I made these as gifts for people who do not need to be on a gluten-free diet. If you make these gluten-free, you'll need to make some substitutions, including using gluten-free oats.
