Such a pretty gift jar! I haven't prepared the cookies yet, I needed a shower gift and took these. Everyone thought they were so cute,and begged for the recipe. Will report back when I have a chance to make it again and acutally bake them. I'm putting this jewel in my holiday idea cookbook. Made for newest tag. Addition Dec. 8, 2012... these cookies are so very good, I added a handful of white chocolate chips ..yummmmmmmm.
