As I mentioned a few weeks ago, my Aunt will be contributing posts from time to time. She’s fantastic with homemade gifts so I asked her to share some of her favorites. Over the next few days, I’ll be posting several posts from her Gifts in a Jar – hopefully you’ll be inspired to make some of ‘em!
The following post is from Aunt Mary…
For all of the Gifts in a Jar, you will need a Jar of any type. Mason Jars work well, or an old food jar. The ideal size is at least a quart to make sure all the layers show.
Layer the ingredients in your jar in the same order as they are listed above. Pack down each layer gently before adding the next. Once complete, cover the jar tightly with a lid. Add fabric, attach directions to ribbon or raffia.
Make a copy of the baking directions below and place them on a card or paper and attach to the jar!
:: 1 Jar, Cranberry Pecan Muffin Mix
:: 3/4 cup, Milk
:: 1/4 cup or 1/2 stick, Butter (Melted)
:: 1 Egg (beaten)
