christmas cookie gift
Well, if you know me at all, you won’t be surprised to learn that I haven’t stopped just making cookies. Horizon Organic asked me to make an easy and fun gift idea this holiday season and decided to use these cookies and a cookie jar I found at my local Kroger store.
Who would give a cookie jar as a gift without cookies, right? ! I made this batch and filled the jars with them, and even decided to write a little poem to turn it into a hashtag reminding recipients of the real reason for this magical season.
Making this gift was no easy task! I first found a cute jar. From there, I made this printable label.

Just click on the image above, right click and save. Open it in programs such as WORD, RE-SIZE, PRINT, and CUT OUT.
Attach it to your jar or any gift with ribbon or twine.
Tips + Storage Information
What’s in Eggnog: Eggnog is milk or cream-based, with egg yolks, tapioca starch, and plenty of nutmeg. It’s super creamy and delicious. I have a very easy homemade eggnog recipe.
How to make them soft and chewy: Eggnog cookies are sweeter than crispy cakes. If you want to make them more chewy, consider substituting ½ brown sugar for the white sugar called for in the recipe. Also make sure to remove the cookies as soon as the edges start to brown to keep them soft.
freeze: These cookies are great to bake and then freeze the cookies, or just freeze the dough before baking. When freezing baked cookies, make sure to freeze them in layers, then let them thaw to room temperature before freezing. When freezing the dough and then trying to bake it, make sure to add a few extra minutes.
shop The cookies sit in a ziplock bag or Tupperware container on the counter for about a week. These cookies are made a bit like a cake and run the risk of drying out if left out. You can freeze them in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks. If you’re concerned that they will harden over time, you can place a loaf of sandwich bread in the container. Bread will spoil before your cookies are done!
