    I’ve made these before for a shower, and I jsut want to warn you that they cost way more than you will expect AND it’s really hard to pack the flower and sugar in tight to get everything in the jar. In fact, doing so actually hurt.

    Also, I remember a story from a while ago about people not being able to take these in carry-on luggage (sort of like the mishap with the cupcakes in a jar). So that’s something to think of if you will have OOTers.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  I agree with this. It does takes time to do it, but I did it for christmas once. And they turned out real cute. But did take a while.

    They’re cute in theory but I don’t know if I’d actually make the cookies. My cousin gave us a large version of this for Christmas and we just ate the m&m’s out of it.

    I would totally bake cookies.

    i voted no because:

    – the 8 ounce jar is too small to make it worth baking

    – as someone who bakes, i know that the sugar should be creamed with the butter and then the eggs.  cookies baked using a mix where everything is layered in one jar would not turn out so great.

    maybe use the same idea but instead of a cookie mix, you can layer a hot cocoa mix or something else that would normally come in an 8 ounce size.

    I would make it, but probably not if it had walnuts in it? 

    I also think these seem like they’d be more expensive to make than you’d expect.

    I don’t know that I would make them. A lot depends on what kind of cookie it is. It may not be worth all the hassle though.

    1. I woudln’t know what to do with it (it’d require an explanation on the jar)

    2. Doesn’t look like it’d make more than 3 or 4 cookies so many guests might feel it’s not worth it.

    I think it’s a cute idea, but I don’t think it’s worth the time/money

    No, honestly I wouldn’t.  I have one of these from Christmas a few years ago as a “decoration” in my kitchen, that should probably get tossed since it’s so old now.  But no, I wouldn’t actually use it.

    Honestly? No….but thats probably because I don’t usually bake unless I have to.
