Today is National Gingerbread Day, so this is a great time to make up these “cookies in a jar” to give to family and friends to make during the Christmas season.  Packaged with directions and a cookie cutter attached, they will provide an evening of enjoyment for everyone!

            Layer the following ingredients in a quart wide-mouth canning jar in the following combinations:


Bottom Layer:

1 1/4c flour

1pkg instant butterscotch pudding


Middle Layer:

3/4c brown sugar


Top Layer:

1c flour

1tsp baking soda

2tsp ginger

1/2tsp each cinnamon, allspice


Directions: Cream 1/2c butter and 1/4c honey, add 1 egg and then add contents of jar and mix until well blended.  Chill 1 hour.  Roll dough ¼” thick, cut with cookie cutter and place on greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 mins. 


Icing: Mix 2c powdered sugar with 2Tbs frozen lemonade concentrate and ice gingerbread men.




Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others,
faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms

I Peter 4:10
