I received a Mason jar Mrs Claus Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix from Sisters Gourmet to try and was SUPER excited! I love Christmas and I love cookies and so does literally everyone else in my home! My kids were super duper excited when I showed them the jar, and two cute little tubes of Reindeer food that Sisters Gourmet sent along as well ( those got put up in the cabinet for later, but they were amazed! ) We decided to make our cookies on a rainy Saturday when we were stuck in the house to brighten up our day a little…we got out the other necessary ingredients, turned on Pandora to listen to Christmas tunes and got to work! I let my kids do almost all of the work and they absolutely had a ball! They were quite impressed that all of the dry ingredients were packed into this jar…so was I ! We really thought making these cookies were a breeze, the only issue we had was when we got to the chocolate section and the kids had to have me bust that bit out of the jar…it was a little tricky, but nothing too bad 😉 We popped them in the oven and the kiddos could barely contain their excitement to try out the cookies that THEY made! The scent filled the house which made the anticipation even stronger, and when we pulled those babies out of the oven I could tell immediately they were going to taste just as good as they smelled…and they did! We literally ate every single cookie that night! 😉 ( though I think my husband had a lot to do with that! 😛 ) We loved these cookies and think that these would be perfect to give as gifts, which we very well may do this Holiday Season which is fastly approaching! They also have a WIDE variety of other mixes for Christmas, as well as for other occasions, such as just wanting to eat some yummy yummy cookies 😉 I also think that it is totally adorable that they offer bright and cheerful “Thank You!” jars ! What a sweet idea and I know that anyone would absolutely love love love to receive one in the mail as a sweet surprise!
Here are the directions for the particular jar I received

Add 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla
Add entire jar of dry ingredients and mix well, adding 1-2 Tbs. of water until dough reaches desired consistency
Form 1 1/2 inch balls and bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes
Here is a little back info on the Sisters Gourmet Company Taken from their website :
“Baking a difference since 1995
We grew up baking together. Our Mom often welcomed us home from school with homemade cookies, fresh from the oven. There was, and still is, something special about walking into a home filled with the scent of baking in the air. That’s why we love to bake, and want other to experience that same special feeling in the home.
I received Sisters Gourmet cookie mix to try out at no cost to me, however, these opinions are 100 percent my own!
