Cookies in a jar

Sadie Kuzio and Danica McLaren were busy decorating their cookie jar with the assistance of Early Childhood Instructor Jennifer Berry at the Santa’s Workshop held at the cultural centre Nov. 17. The program for ages 3-5 had 10 children in attendance making M&M Cookies in a Jar.

The child-friendly fun Christmas gift is wrapped before it is brought home and the ingredients are in the decorated jar.
The jar has layers of flour mixture, brown sugar and M&M candies on top of the jar.

Once home the contents are emptied into a mixing bowl with other ingredients to make two-and-a half dozen cookies.
