chia I not only made this as a gift for a friend birthday but I also made the actual cookies! Both were great. I loved the way the layers lookded in the jar and I also added 6 ready made cookies in a fall bag to the decorated jar. My friend really thought it was a neat gift. My kids really liked the actual cookies too. Thanks for a great, simple idea for a gift.
