I am always looking for fun Christmas gifts instead of the usual chocolates and tins of biscuits. Came across Cowgirl Cookies on Bakerella's site and knew I would have to go in search of jars and ingredients to make my own.
The photo above I took just after packing!.
Here are jars packed with M&M Peanut candies and smarties. Pink Smarties are available in most large supermarkets in tubes at this time of the year. Grab them while you can! I bought pink and white gingham and suede cord for wrapping around the tops but it is difficult on these type of jars as you are not working with a screw on lid!. Some of the ingredients shifted/moved on packing - but I think they still look great and are a fun/novel idea.
I picked up the Kilner Jars in Brennans Cook Shop. They are approx a quart, 2 pints/1litre jars.
Full instructions are available on Bakerella as to how to pack/cooking temps etc. I cooked two batches to test! I have a fan oven so put them in at 170C (instead of 350F).
Yum, yum!! Thanks so much for stopping by.
