I love giving homemade gifts for gifts at the holidays or other special occasions.

From homemade cocoa mixes to chex mix to cookies, I think that they are homemade gives such a wonderful touch. We even gave homemade Mixed Berry Jam as our wedding favor this year.

We decided to give out cookies to Spread Cookie Joy with friends and family. So much fun that everyone can enjoy!

I started by gathering up some great Krusteaz mixes to make a variety of cookies to gift. Baking with Krusteaz makes baking really easy, which is really important when you are baking with a toddler. You can download your own Krusteaz $1 off coupon here!

With the Oatmeal Scotchie Cookie Mix, I made 7 Layer Bars. The cookie mix makes for a fantastic base, instead of the typical graham cracker crumb base. Plus, this oatmeal cookie mix has butterscotch chips, which are in 7 Layer Bars, so it goes perfectly with the bars.

We even made sugar cookies, shortbread cookies with jam centers, and snickerdoodles with fantastic Krusteaz mixes. I used some of the remaining jars of jam we had from our wedding for the shortbread cookies. So fun! No matter what jam you use you can’t beat shortbread cookies.

Autumn loves to help in the kitchen when I am baking, which I love since it helps teach her how to count when we measure off ingredients. Or she will help turn on the mixer or decorate cakes or cookies. But this time she decided to give the Snickerdoodles an extra special touch as she shoved her finger in them as we were rolling them in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Some are more donut shaped than round. ha! But it gives them character and some extra toddler love.

I packaged them up in decorated bags and tied them off with some twine and attached a tag. The tags are so cute! They are tags that were customized from Zazzle! I had never ordered from Zazzle before but I’m hooked now with all the different products and creative designs that you can have personalized. Makes for a nice finishing touch on the cookie packages.

You can even package them in mason jars, which is super cute too! Just make sure you get wide mouth jars so you can easily get cookies in and out.
