Hawaiian Cookies in a Jar

Hawaiian Cookies in a Jar: Jar

I really enjoyed putting together the jar with all of the Hawaiian themed ingredients! When I was putting it together I was a little bit nervous that my jar wasn’t going to be big enough; in order to calm my nerves I added up the measurements from the recipe and filled the jar up with the sum of the measurements in water. It worked well and I managed to find a jar that would fit all the ingredients almost exactly! To add that extra touch I wrapped tissue paper around the top by tying a piece of wool around a few circles of tissue paper. This is also an excellent way to attach the instruction card that goes along with the craft!

Hawaiian Cookies in a Jar: Ingredients

Since this isn’t your average chocolate chip cookie recipe, there are some unusual ingredients like the dates and macadamia nuts that might not be close at hand in a kitchen. By putting the majority of the ingredients in a jar you could present this as a cute little gift for a grandma or mom, and all that would be required to complete the recipe would be a few simple ingredients and an assistant baker of course!

The best part of this craft is the final product… The cookies! I had to fight my dad off when it was time to take a picture of the cookies, but I can’t blame him because they smelled really delicious! They tasted delicious too!
