What better way to say I love you than cookies in a jar!

To my mother and my friend, I now understand most of the fustrations that came with kids lol and don't blame you at all in fact I will say this : You were right mom ;-) the two words moms love to hear lol
Today is another day God has granted me with my kids and that is a celebration and the best gift of all! so happy mothers day everyday because God saw it fit to grant me another day with these unbelievably precious, rambunctious, goofy, loving, insane and cute little individuals that somehow resemble me lol
so I hope your mothers day is an amazing one and I hope it never ends!

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Craik

Mothers day gifts-cookies in a jar
I think these are a great idea and I have been wanting to try these for I did ;-)
Searching for a good recipe (and there are tons) I found this little gem from nestle (click link below)

These little treats in a jar came out really good!

I used quart mason jars-regular mouth (since they were out of wide mouth ones)

I put the recipe on the top of the jar and the lid helps keep it in place

Tada! the cookies turned out beautiful (thanks to my silpat)
mmmm don't lick the screen lol

I found the cutest cute polka dot tags click here to open it ;-)
I used the nestle cookies in a jar recipe just click here to view.
The recipe circles I just printed up in word you can print them here or make your own 

Follow the recipe as is and it will turn out great! enjoy and Happy mothers day!!!!
