12 Days of Christmas Cookies - Day 3

Thanks to an earlier post on $5 Dinners, today the kids and I made these Teacher's gifts for the kids to hand out later this week. I of course... had to demonstrate and so I made one for us and ended up making of batch of cookies in end... for quality assurance.
(We omitted the the nuts in case their are any nut allergies in the families. We added to the instructions attached to jar "to add 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or Walnuts")
