Early Holiday DIY: Mickey Mason Jar Cookie Kit

It seems that a lot of people are getting into the Christmas spirit a bit early this year. Myself included! I’ve already started decorating and have done a little bit of shopping, it makes me happy! Another thing I like to do for the holidays is to look up recipes and crafting ideas. Here’s something I found on Disney Family!

Early Holiday DIY: Mickey Mason Jar Cookie Kit 1

Here’s a sweet way to gift the joy of baking to a friend or teacher who also happens to love all things Disney. Prep the dry ingredients for the perfect holiday cookie, include a recipe, and add a little Mickey magic on top!

What You’ll Need:

Mason Jar

Black construction paper or cardstock

Double-sided tape

Red ribbon

Twine

Dry Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups rolled oats

3/4 cup raisins

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 packed light brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

To Assemble the Mickey Mason Jar Cookie Kit:

Measure out the above ingredients or the ingredients to a cookie recipe of your choosing. Layer the dry cookie mix ingredients inside a mason jar.
Cut a small pair of Mickey ears out of black construction paper or cardstock. Leave an inch of paper below the ears. Fold and attach to the top of the Mason jar with double-sided tape.
Tie a red bow around the Mason jar.
Cut a recipe card sized sheet of paper, write out the cookie recipe corresponding to the ingredients in the jar and attach to the mason jar with twine.
Baking Instructions to Include with your Gift:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In large bowl, cream together ½ cup butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in 2 eggs and ¾ tsp vanilla until fluffy. Gradually beat flour into your butter mixture. Stir in oats and raisins.
Chill your mixture in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Drop rolled teaspoonfuls of your mixture onto a cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Cool slightly, remove from sheet to wire rack, and then cool completely.

Stay tuned for more Christmas fun the entire holiday season!
