I will be posting more gifts in a jar, and also check out Stormys "Gifts from the Pantry".

I've made "Gifts-In-A-Jar" in the past. They are always well received. A written copy of the recipe should accompany each 'Jar'. This Coconut Cookie is new to me. I am certain that the recipients will appreciate the obvious work you went through to put this gift together!

Well done, Ms. Penny! LOL :-)
