Take a Canning jar (new or old) and layer cookie dough ingredients (1/2 the white ingredients [flour, baking soda, salt, sugar], 1/2 the brown sugar, all the chocolate chips or M&Ms, the other half brown sugar, the other half white ingredients). Then, between the lid and jar ring, put a piece of muslin or a doily and stamp pretty Christmas stars or use stickers to decorate. Tie raffia around the jar with a tag telling what to add (1 egg, 1 cup butter, 1 tsp. vanilla usually), and how to cook them.
