At our Dublin meet & greet we got given so many wonderful gifts from our viewers - but I think this one was my favourite! It was so creative...a cookie recipe in a jar?! Genius! I'm not sure if the person that gave this to us made it herself or if this is something you can buy (I didn't get to open the presents until after the event so I don't even know who this is from :( Sorry!) but it's SUCH an amazing idea for a present! Before we travelled back to England, this looked a lot prettier too with layers of white & brown from the sugar, flour & cocoa but unfortunately it all got mixed up during the flight!
The label came with a little recipe which involved adding 75g of butter and 1 egg so this week Emilia & I finally got around to baking these! It was actually our first time baking chocolate chip cookies and since Emilia is a chocolate fiend she was in heaven! She loved spooning out the dough and patting it onto the cookie sheets. And the recipe worked out really well...we ended up with 18 delicious double chocolate chip cookies!
I would seriously recommend this as a creative DIY gift for somebody - it looks like it would be pretty easy to make yourself and looks very pretty with a bow tied around it! Not only are you giving somebody a nice-looking present but you're also giving them the gift of making memories baking with their loved ones! :) And you can't put a price on that!
